How to configure your WordPress server for the first time
In the spirit of a quick-and-dirty guide, we’ll show you how to configure a server to run the WordPress theme in your WordPress site.
If you want to see the full WordPress installation in action, you’ll need to download the source code of WordPress itself and run it under your web browser.
It’s also worth noting that installing a new WordPress theme on a computer doesn’t have to be a huge deal.
This tutorial covers installing a theme with the theme engine, which is used to create the themes.
A separate installation can also be done with the plugin-based theme editor.
It also covers configuring a database for your site.
For this tutorial, we’re using a version of WordPress 220.127.116.11 released on April 7, 2018.
Once you have your server configured and running, you can access your WordPress installation through your web server.
It should then be able to see all of your sites content and manage your site’s database, so you’ll see the changes as you go.
Next, let’s check if everything is set up properly.
Check the settings for your server First, you need to ensure your server has the correct settings for what you want.
To do this, open up the server configuration dialog.
To change the default WordPress settings, click the Edit button in the top-right corner and then click the checkbox next to “Show me the settings.”
If everything is there, your server will show you the settings you need.
If there’s a problem, you will need to make sure to go back to the server and click the “Restart” button in order to re-adjust the default settings.
The following are the default options for your WordPress database, if they’re different from the defaults listed below.
Database Default WordPress version WordPress version 18.104.22.168 or higher WordPress version 5.1 or higher MySQL version 1.8 or higher Database default MySQL version 5, 5.2, or 6.2 Database default PHP version 4, 5, or 7.3, 7.4, or 8.0, 8.1, or 9.0 MySQL version 6, 7, 8, or 10.0 WordPress version 10, 11, or 12 MySQL version 8, 9, 10, or 11 MySQL version 10.1 WordPress version 11.0 or 12.0 You may want to change the database settings to a different version of MySQL if you’re not using the default version.
WordPress defaults are stored in the /wp-content/config/ directory.
WordPress also supports multiple versions of MySQL, but we’ll leave that for another tutorial.
If your server is running on a version that’s different from your default version, you must change it manually.
WordPress will then update the database and start the server.
Check for updates WordPress will update your WordPress files automatically, but if you want WordPress to use a different database for its configuration, you may need to use the update-database command.
WordPress uses the PHP version in the server’s /wp/includes directory, so we can use the command php -D database:mysql version=5.1/mySQL_version .
You can check the status of your database by running the following command: $ php -P /wp /includes/mysql.conf The output of this command will display an error message if the database has been updated, so make sure that you’re running WordPress with the –update-database option enabled.
Check that your WordPress is working well If everything works fine, WordPress should be able show up in your browser’s address bar.
You’ll see a new icon at the top of the screen if the server is up and running.
If it’s not, it means your server needs to be restarted.
Restart your server If you’re still experiencing problems, it’s time to restart your server.
This will bring up a list of available commands, but first, you should make sure you’ve configured your WordPress with all the appropriate permissions.
If not, check your permissions to make it clear what they are.
To start a new server, click “Start Server.”
If you have administrator privileges, click on “Start With Server.”
From here, you have the option to create a user, change a password, or change the username of a user.
When creating a user or password, choose a unique name and type the password you want, followed by a colon (:).
The password should be unique to your account, and the name of the user should be something unique to the site you’re using.
If creating a username, enter “admin” as the first letter of the name.
From here on out, you’re done!
The default WordPress password you’ve set up is “admin.”
To change your WordPress password, you simply need to click on the “Change Password” button at the bottom of the WordPress screen.
To reset your password, simply click the reset button
