I have decided to use WordPress combined with the Shopperpress ecommerce theme for a new ecommerce site I am building.
I am trying to follow the famous 5-minute install and have completed points 1-3 (http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress#Famous_5-Minute_Install) but am stuck with points 4 and 5 because:
(a) I can't seem to upload the wordpress files to the server. I installed filezilla server but there isn't an intuitive interface for doing this and I don't know enough about doing it blind.
(b) The instruction in point 4 of the 5 minute install asks where in my website I want to store the pages, but I don't have a website yet, I would like to build one with wordpress when I get it installed! Will this installation only work with a website that's been created already?
(c) Under point 5 of the quick install, "run the install", the links don't work in my browser. How do I get them to work?
This is probably easy to some but I could really use the help of someone in the know - can anyone help me? Is there another way to build a site with WordPress?
Thanks a lot :)
