    Hi!

    After download WordPress perform following steps :

    • Create a database for WordPress on your web server, as well as a MySQL user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.
    • Rename the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php.
    • Open wp-config.php in a text editor and fill in your database details as explained in Editing wp-config.php to generate and use your secret key password.
    • Upload the WordPress files in the desired location on your web server.
    • If you want to have your WordPress installation in its own subdirectory on your web site then create the blog directory on your server and upload WordPress to the directory via FTP.
    • Run the WordPress installation script by accessing http://<Your_Site_Name>/wp-admin/install.php in a web browser.
    • Complate the installation and your WordPress site will work.

    Regards.
