The five minute setup of WordPress: wordpress.org vs. wordpress.com

Setting up WordPress is simple if you download it from wordpress.org and do not try to find it on wordpress.com!

Hi,

I was told to setup wordpress on marcopoloni.com and that I would find all the instructions on wordpress. Silly me I went on the wordpress.com instead of the wordpress.org web site. So I am just posting a quick instruction to help the one person who will make the same mistake I made.

To get the software so that you can install it on your website go to wordpress.org, to get your blog started and hosted for free go to wordpress.com

UPDATE

Another stumbling block I ran into during installation was my server’s restriction on the use of .htaccess. This prevented us from using the nice permalink feature.

After reading our web hosting company’s blog I found out that I had to move to a newer plan that allowed the use of .htaccess. We moved to a newer plan and voila`: great permalinks.
