Metal Toad University #10: Real Time Word Press

In this episode our intrepid adventurers embarked on a quest to install WordPress. I have to admit, this was quite easy and didn't take nearly as long I expected it would. Since I was also new to WordPress, we explored together. We went through the process of downloading and installing it, setting up the database, and selecting a theme. Along the way we talk about other concepts as they come up like using Lorem Ipsum placeholder text, using rsync to transfer files, and using command line MySQL.

Next week we hope to talk about WordPress theming, but that will depend on if I can get a guest speaker on it or not. If we don't talk about that, we'll do a sample PHP application and talk about basic database work.
