Social Media marketing – God send or a just a total menace?
As we see companies grow and other stay small is due to the fact that most of the entrepreneurs are not willing to adapt to the new wave of doing business. It’s so obvious that the older business owners are not open to the new media that is sweeping the world.
It’s because this generation doesn’t want to learn anything new, you can’t learn an old dog new tricks they say. Especially if they are not really willing to adapt to it. And you might have heard it once or twice that they did business for a long time (comfort zone)
To install WordPress go to wordpress.org and click on the blue button to download the latest working version of WordPress.
Unzip the files and put the map on your desktop (any other place, just make it easy to find)
Prepare the files… make a copyof the ‘wp-config-sample.php’ file and rename it to ‘wp-config.php’
Open the ‘wp-config.php’ file and edit the parameters for connecting to the database. (username, password, database name)
The MySQL settings are created by your hosting service.
Upload the files to the host server, go to the url where WordPress is installed and follow the guide lines.
Installing WordPress on a computer (localhost)
To install WordPress on a localhost server is actually the same procedure, but you need to be familiar with localhost server like MAMP, XAMPP, WAMP, …
I’m not really an expert in server side settings. So don’t even ask me how to deal with this apps.
I used WAMP on my windows machine, because i like the file structure and because it’s so easy to use. I used XAMPP prior to WAMP back ten it was messy, maybe it got better. Ill have to write about it later.
I started out on the internet by going to the library surfing the net in its early stage somewhere in the nineties. By finding the “view source” in the right-click button menu, I saw the skeleton of a web page and started unravel the “bones” of it. Next thing you know I was making websites.
It didn’t stop there. Due to a ex-girlfriend ,who was studying “multimedia”, I came across programs and tools for animation and graphics. Yet again I grabbed all the knowledge about these tools and went experimenting with the elements.
I grew up with game consoles, computer and any high-tech related gadgets. A geek in disguise as some may say. And yes I have a thing for Social Media… Connecting to people all over the world and sharing thoughts and ideas. Not only front-end development, but also back-end development is a skill that I long to control.
