Weekly WordPress Roundup #27

I started with WordPress eight years ago and installed WordPress for the first time.

My first thought was: Can I really make this work?

It looked very hard and an enhanced query using cPanel, create a database and a MySQL user. Continue with edit the wp-config.php file, upload the WordPress files via FTP and more. My first thought before I sprang into action was. I can’t do this.

Many people probably recognize the feeling. Especially beginners who really would like to get started with WordPress with a self-hosted installation!

I have been in the same situation, thinking the same thoughts. It can feel overwhelming and as an almost insurmountable task. Which it is not, I promise.

There are very good instructions in WordPress Famous 5-Minute Install. It was the one I followed. But there are lots of yet more detailed tutorials to follow that makes it a breeze to install WordPress, as you will discover in our roundup.
