Art 318 Assignment 5: Set Up a WordPress CMS

318 Home

In this assignment you’ll utilize the domain and hosting services you acquired at the beginning of the semester and install a functioning WordPress Content Management System. You’ll need to set it up in either the root or your site or in a subfolder, then create a database and connect the database to the installation. There’s several steps, but it’s mostly harmless. Once this takes place, we can begin to learn the functionality of WordPress. The link below will open a video explaining the process.
