First post

This is first post, just to see if WordPress (that thing this site is running on) is working correctly.

Actually i first tried WordPress in VirtualBox, just to be sure what it is. Because for Virtual Box I did not found any ready made appliance with pre-installed WordPress (and for VMware there was only some very old appliance with WordPress 2.2) i decided to try to install everything myself.

Luckily it is easy and well documented. Just in case I will need it in future summary is below:

  1. Download & install VirtualBox
  2. Download & install Ubuntu 9.10 CD image into VirtualBox (it is interesting that 64bit version for Intell hw is  named ubuntu-9.10-desktop-amd64.iso,  reason is probably because amd came with this 64bit architecture first…)
  3. Install Apache and MySQL with command
    sudo tasksel install lamp-server
    (detailed tutorial is in Ubuntu documentation)
  4. Install WordPress and configure it for new blog
    1. sudo apt-get install wordpress php5-gd
      (installation directory is /usr/share/wordpress)
    2. sudo ln -s /usr/share/wordpress /var/www/wordpress
      (symbolic link for Apache)
    3. sudo bash /usr/share/doc/wordpress/examples/setup-mysql -n wordpress localhost
      (setup of database)
    4. Go to http://localhost/wordpress and finish setup of blog itself

    (detailed tutorial is again in Ubuntu documentation)

Currently WordPress seems very good. Definitely better than hand coding whole site in html as it was years (was it really last century?) before.
