How to create a blog on WordPress?

Many of you have probably heard about the free WordPress platform. Perhaps they even tried to create a blog on this “engine”, but fearing the difficulties with installation and configuration, they decided to abandon this idea. It is completely in vain, to deal with this platform is quite simple, which I am going to prove to you. But first I offer you my story on how to get started with WordPress. Before opening my blog, I also wondered: where and how to do it? After a lengthy study of the market, I settled on a WordPress platform for paid hosting. I will not hide, at first there were many difficulties and obstacles: lack of programming experience, lack of time, work, vacation, etc. But now everything fell into place, the normal workflow is going on, which I am very happy about. And I do not regret at all that my choice fell on WordPress. I am satisfied with the engine, moreover: the developers do not cease to amaze with new, convenient lotions in the admin panel, which appear almost in every update of the engine. The update is about once a month. As for the admin panel, here everything is done conveniently and clearly, you will not need much time and great mental effort to master its capabilities. Not having basic knowledge in html, you can quite cope with the main functions of the engine: create headings and pages, insert images, audio and video files, and most importantly – publish your articles. After all, this is the main task of any blog. Believe me, because you do not use the functionality to its fullest, no one will judge you. Interesting and useful content will fill your gaps in programming. Although I will not hide, when forming a blog, questions will arise at regular intervals. This is normal. This should not frighten you, let alone stop, because, as you know, every beginning is difficult. In addition, the answers to most of them can be found on the Russian WordPress user support forum. If you still can’t find the answer to your question, and this can happen if you want to expand the possibilities of your blog, then you will have to turn to programmers for help. This can be done on the sites of freelancers, which abound in Runet. Your problem can be solved in just 3–10 dollars. Well, most often, issues of functionality can be closed by installing a particular plug-in. Plugin – an independently compiled software module that is dynamically connected to the main program (in this case, to WordPress), designed to expand and / or use its capabilities. Currently, there are more than 9000 plug-ins for WordPress, most of which can be downloaded from the Russian WordPress support site. It is easy to come to the conclusion that to solve almost any problem on the blog there is a plugin. Install and activate them is very simple. Although to set up some plugins you need the knowledge of the same html. To save yourself from unnecessary expenses, I recommend to study at least its basics. It will take no more than a week of your precious time. As a result, you will gain knowledge that will untie your hands and facilitate the work. So are you ready to create your own offline blog? Yes! Then go ahead! First you need to choose a domain name and hosting for your future blog. Then you can proceed to the procedure for downloading to the server engine WordPress. You can download the latest version of this CMS on the Russian WordPress support site. After you have downloaded the WordPress archive, you need to do the following: 1. Unzip the archive into a separate folder. 2. Open the file wp-config-sample.php with a text editor, for example, Notepad ++. It can be downloaded on the Internet, freely available. Do not use for this simple Notepad! Fill in the data to connect to the MySQL database. You can get them from your hoster. Change the file name to wp-config.php and save it in the same directory. 3. Configure an FTP connection with your virtual server (this is the disk space that the hosting company has provided to you). How to do it? This will require any file manager, for example, Total Commander. Open the program and go to the tab “Connect to FTP-server …” Next, click the “Add” button. The “FTP Connection Setup” window opens where you need to enter the following: Title: any value that you understand. Server name: you will find it in the admin panel of your hosting. Account and password: this is the data that you used to register your account on the hosting. Nothing more is needed! Click “OK”. 4. The header of your FTP connection appeared in the “Connect to:” window. Select it, click on the button “Connect”. Then you go to the server, unless of course you have connected the Internet. We find the Public_html daddy, open it and fill in the contents of the unpacked archive. 5. In your browser, open your blog_domain / wp-admin / install.php. This should set up the tables needed for the blog. If an error occurs, check your…
