I have recently wanted to stat an online guitar shop/E-shop.
I signed up with 123-reg for a domain and hosting. I currently have all that sorted out and was looking to install some script, in my domain to build my site.
123 offers several free apps/scripts for doing this. One of the is called’ WordPress Blog’ and I can install that from my control panel (in the 123-reg site) but I am curious.
Why is this app they offer called WordPress Blog? It ses its for building blog sites but I want more of an E-shop site.
Is there a wordpress and wordpress blog, or is WordPress blog and WordPress the same bit of software?
I have seen a tutorial on youtube of a guy building an e-shop type site with WordPress, but I don’t know if he is using WordPress blog, or just WordPress.
Well to get round that question, I thought I would go to the WordPress website and download the free download (which the guy recommends in the youtube video)
Here you can download ‘WordPressV3.6’ (I noticed its not called WordPRess Blog) and I did this. A file appeared on my desktop containing many files.
I then went back to my host and went into my file manager to upload the the WordPress file on my desktop to my host. However, this was problematic and i have become stuck. I would have thought it was 1 file you chose and it will upload all the wordpress files but there are many files and it seem as though I have to go through all of them, selecting and uploading.
Would appreciate some help. I use a mac if thats making it harder lol
