    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 🙂

    Start with FTP Clients « WordPress Codex on how to use Filezilla and upload WordPress to be sure you’ve got the files on your server. Then you can edit wp-config.php

    Clear your browser cache, too, and restart it to possibly fix the problem with the links not working.
