[00:00:00] Justyn Hornor here with learnable.com and in this module we’ll going to learn about installing WordPress. This could be a very intimidating module for some of you to go through, because we’re going to be dealing with some pretty intense development tools like FTP clients and hosting plans. But don’t worry about it, I’m going to walk you through every step of the process.

[00:00:18] Some of the parts and pieces that we’re going to discuss in this module are the .com versus .org versions of WordPress. Depending on your specific needs, you need to know which one that may be a better fit for you. We’re also going to learn about FTP clients, how to choose a proper hosting plan.

[00:00:36] And then we’re going to get down to installing WordPress. Now, for the vast majority of you, a one-click installation of WordPress is going to be the option that you’re going to have at your disposal and it’s very simple. Just takes a few minutes. You can have WordPress installed and ready to go.

[00:00:55] For another small group of you, you’re going to have to install WordPress from scratch. We are uploading files. You’re manipulating some PHP files. And I will teach you how to do all that stuff in little steps. And when you’re done with this module, you’re going to have a fully functional WordPress site that you can start to work with.
