Worldwilde famous, Wordpress is an open source CMS, launched in 2003 by a developers group.
It is recommended for the "profanes". However it does not equal other CMS which are more complex, and therefore richer.
We start with the simplest steps... The more you progress, page after page, the more sophisticated the scripts will be. However, you must pass the cape of 30 to 40 pages per level, before moving on to the next step... FOLLOW THE STEPS AND IMMERSE YOURSELF!
E0001 - Work environment
Don't dance faster than the music...
Wordpress is one of the most popular CMS, used worlwide. Before proceeding with the installation, you need to make sure that you can have a good working environment. We will use one of the most recent version, the 5.8.2 version.
First of all... the server on which you plan to install your website. You must have sufficient disk space and memory.
Basic technical specifications:
- Server : VPS 4 CPU/16 GB RAM, 950G of space disk (minimum).
- CloudLinux : 4G memory, unrestricted, 200% of the processor capacity.
- PHP : 7.4 version (minimum), 2048M memory, 512M file upload limit.
- SSH : public/Private keys active.
Even if you don't know anything about it, you won't be able to go to the next step without first making sure that everything is in accordance with these technical specifications .
If you do not have the necessary qualifications or all the access/Rights (on CPanel for example), make sure that your host will properly configure the server for you. A second professional, independent opinion, is always welcome (click here if you have any doubts).
To begin with, if you are not working directly on the server, your office computer must also be up to the task, that means, sufficiently powerful with a good Internet connection. Ultimately, you might install basic softwares which will allow you to work much faster, in order to better manage your content offered on your website.
We therefore recommend that you install Adobe Dreamweaver and Visual Studio Code.
