One thought on “How to Install WordPress – WP101 WordPress Tutorial Series

  1. Hi & thank you for the videos! I do not really understand why I need to install wordpress. I already had a blog, without any installation required. All I did was to redirect my blog to my domain. I followed the steps you described, but at the end (min 6:05) I was not asked to enter my data. I just logged in. To sum up, I transferred the wp files using filezilla, but I am not sure if I successfully installed wp, and I do not know what the benefit of this will be. Could you help me out? Thank you!
