How To Make A Blog On Your Site!

Recommended Posts

First of all, you need to find a host that meets all your needs. When it comes to blogs (and forums), the usual combination is PHP + MySQL. It is rather hard to find a piece of software that will operate without these two, and it's usually not worth using. Almost all paid hosts offer this service, and only a few free do the same - Xisto is one them.


Once you have met those condition, you need to decide which blogging system to use. I highly recommend WordPress, as it is widely-used, easy to customize and very secure. The current version is 2.2 and it requires PHP 4.2 and MySQL 4.0. Also, if you want to use "pretty" URIs (instead of those with WordPress, i.e. lots of question marks), you will have to have the Apache mod_rewrite module. To download this version follow this linkl and click on "Download .ZIP".


After doing so, it is all easy stuff. Upload all the files from the ZIP archive to your web server through FTP. Next, open the address where you uploaded the files in your web browser. You will be redirected to the WordPress installation, which is fairly easy. You will only have to create a MySQL user/database through PhpMyAdmin or cPanel, depending on the availability.


As soon as you are finished with the installation, the blog is ready, and it's all about configuring it through the administration panel B)
