I am completely new to WordPress so I would appreciate as simple as possible an explanation please if you can help me.
I want to make a long term venture with my website (currently thinking of an affiliate site but not too sure). Just want to get the site operable first whilst I plan the long term goal for it. Therefore, rather than go the easier route with WordPress.com with some limitations and have to move to WordPress.org in the future probably, I would rather teach myself WordPress.org and have full functionality from the outset.
Basically, I don't want to install WordPress.org on my hard drive (I don't have a personal laptop at the mo and don't want to install it on my business laptop or my wife's laptop), I would much rather install it on my home network shared drive (Seagate 1TB GoFlex Home) so I can access it from multiple laptops if need be for test and development to create my website an then when it is ready I will pay for web hosting and then upload it to a hosting server.
- Is installing it on my network drive possible?
- Is it exactly the same process as installing it locally on a PC hard drive?
- If there is differences, it would be great to know what the process is?
Like I say, a step-by-step process for a beginner would be great to get me up and running.
Any other comments/feedback appreciated aswell.
Thanks in advance.
