How to upload wordpress in to my server and how to run the install.php file?

Question by Nipuni: How to upload wordpress in to my server and how to run the install.php file?
My server is free hosting server and I have uploaded wordpress in to my server via ftp. But now I cannot run the install.php file. I deleted the index.html file which was already on the server and I run the install.php file but it appears 403 forbidden. So I think I couldnt upload wordpress in to the root directory, please help me to resolve this.

Unless the server allows you access to PHP and a MySQL database, you can’t run WordPress. Period.

And you need to set up that database before you can run the install.

How Do I Create Testing Server for Existing WordPress Site?

Question by Help!: How Do I Create Testing Server for Existing WordPress Site?
I have a wordpress website that I want to edit with Dreaweaver. I know that in order to do this you need to set up a testing server. I have installed XAMPP on my system, now how do I bring all of my existing WordPress Files on to the testing server so that I may edit my website in Dreamweaver?

Answer by David
You need to create a database for wordpress to use. (here is a tutorial on creating a database in XAMPP: http://complete-concrete-concise.com/web-tools/creating-a-mysql-database-using-xampp)

After you create the database, you have to go into the config.php file in the first directory of wordpress and edit the database information. (you should only change the database, database username and password)

Then you should be good to go.

Answer by justindean73
The reason that most people do it is that they like to be in control of all their own stuff. Because it can be quite complex and expensive I think they tend to be techie guys, probably that work in the industry that know what they are doing. Personally I use http://www.terapad.com which is a hosted service, but its 100% free and has more features than wordpress. You can ad adsense in as well no problem, I have seen people do it with their Terapad sites ( see http://www.terapad.com/net for examples ). Feel free to drop by my page : http://justindean.terapad.com … Whatever you choose, best of luck with your blog :-)
