My question is fairly naive, so I guess there should be plenty of people out there able to answer it. As a student at my university I have a webpage where I would like to have a blog using WordPress, but I have some questions about how to install it. My URL is in the form of http://universityname/username and the folder where my index.html file is is in the form of /public/homepages/username/web/. I installed WordPress in this web/ directory (it is Red Hat, by the way) but wasn't sure how to take it from there. The installation instructions say to have a database ready with login and password, but at this step I am already uncertain. All I have at this point is a empty generic webpage and would like to install WordPress. If MySQL and PHP are installed I should be able to do this I suppose. Can anyone give me some pointers? Thanks.
