Default Tutorial: How to install Wordpress on a 000webhost account - 07-26-2008, 05:20 PM

Hi all,

i have been reading the forum for a while now and noticed that a lot of people seem to have difficulties installing certain scripts such as Wordpress, Joomla and theirlike.

As i got some time on my hands now i was thinking of putting some tutorials online that might be useful when it comes to the problems i just mentioned. I started out with Wordpress, which is pretty easy to install and had a shot at writing something useful on how to set it up with 000wehost.

This tutorial is more towards people that would like to install the script themselves, and not so much about the WP installation via Fantastico.

So here we go, and remember: Itīs my first shot at doing tutorials, so if commenting go easy on me
How to install WP on a 000webhost.com account

I already apologize for possible typos, misspellings and whatnot, but what can i say...i am german

Unfortunately, the link to your tutorial doesn't work. I'm getting this error message:

Error 403: Access Denied/Forbidden

Can you please fix that? I'm very interested in reading your tutorial and I think many people may be too.

Stan

Nice tutorial but for those who are not techy enough just use the fantastico installer (one click auto installer). Its great with this server coz it automatically creates a database for you, so you need not to worry: how to create a database or alter wp-config file coz its all there.

Upon one-click installation, ALWAYS read the instructions there. And when you are asked to fill up username & password for admin purposes take not of that. Coz that would be your username & password when you login to your wordpress dashboard.

After the installation is finished, to login just go to yours site, example:
mywebsite.site88.com/wp-admin/
(if you installed it on the root folder)

or

mywebsite.sit88.com/mywp-folder/wp-admin/

Then just enter the username & password that i told you earlier to take note. That's it

Will this work for a regular php script as well? I'm trying to install a script so people can leave comments, but I'm having trouble.

I got the following error:
PHP Error Message

Fatal error: Call to a member function addElement() on a non-object in /home/a9715075/public_html/photos-r/comments/comment_script_1.1.0/configuration/installation_form.inc.php on line 10

Hi Bad Karma,

I'm excited that you wrote a tutorial, because I'm looking to install WordPress for the first time at 000webhost.

I can no longer load your tutorial -- is it still up anywhere? I know it's been nearly a year since you posted it.

Thanks!!

Rob
