    So much for the 5 minute installation. I have downloaded wp 3.8 more than once and I cannot find a setup file or a zip file so I cannot get started.

    can anyone help please?

    thank you.

    The download is a ZIP file containing .php files. It needs to be unzipped and uploaded to your server using FTP software.

    Here are the instructions http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    and a good article by a reputable blog http://www.wpbeginner.com/how-to-install-wordpress/

    I will add that I have installed and configured WordPress in well under 5 minutes :) However the 5 minute install definitely assumes the user is familiar with web servers. Good luck and have fun!

    Hope that helps :)
