You probably already know that WordPress is one of the most streamlined and affordable content management systems available for running small publications, blogs, directories, FAQs and handbooks, or just about any site that can be described as "publication-like."
This tutorial isn't about using WordPress -- we have other tutorials for that. This one's all about getting ready to rumble - how to get WordPress installed and set up on a web host. It also covers the "first steps" you should take before doing anything else on a new WordPress site.
Finally, we'll lead you through the process of setting up a second WordPress installation for development and testing purposes.
Note: This tutorial is almost but not quite complete - a few embedded links may point to pages that don't exist yet. Thanks for your patience.
