    Or can this be used to actually do web pages? I havent been able to figure that out.

    Looks like more a Web interface to add comments and posts to.

    I thought so too…but only can add comments and stuff…Where to create actual web page????

    quoted from links
    Flexibility With WordPress, you can create any type of website you want: a personal blog or website, a photoblog, a business website, a professional portfolio, a government website, a magazine or news website, an online community, even a network of websites. You can make your website beautiful with themes, and extend it with plugins. You can even build your very own application.

    Or is this ment to only run in windows pc?

    WordPress runs on a web server. You talk to it via a browser or app.

    There are a large number of getting started videos that should help you see how to do the basics or you could sign up for a free site on wordpress.com to get familiar with the platform.

    ok. Friend only asked me to install that so could make web pages. So I put it on my desktop pc. So if try to install it again I go thru browser and not locally? As kinda installed it allready, but was getting fully errors when tried to click on admin menu.

    But as far as could see, it only let me add posts and comments and no clue how to make a webpage with onlu posting comments. Maybe me stupido heh…

    If you install WordPress on a local PC you have a local site — not visible off your network.

    To add pages, PAGES->ADD from the dashboard, To add blog posts, POSTS->ADD.

    If you want to install locally, here’s a good way to do it: https://local.getflywheel.com/

    But for a site others can see, you need to get hosting someplace.

    I do run www,ftp,irc,servers and host 14 domains on static ip. Aint that a normal home pc right? Only raid5 8tb and raid6 14tb +ssd disks.

    I just never heard of this wordpress but bad things. I personally do all my coding with kate =Wintendo notepad.

    I basically got it finally to run but didnt realize that need to build mysql db manually. Why cant the install.php build the db?

    But got a s**t load of errors as start it.Where to locate/find what I need to install for these php files to run?

    Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function gzinflate() in /srv/www/htdocs/virtualhosts/files.antsuntupa.fi/jarmo/wordpress/wp-includes/class-requests.php:947 Stack trace: #0

    cant figure this out

    or do I have too new system? running latest php,apache and mysql. Could that be a prob?

    Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function gzinflate() in /srv/www/htdocs/virtualhosts/files.antsuntupa.fi/jarmo/wordpress/wp-includes/class-requests.php:947 Stack trace: #0

    cant figure that out…

    if (false !== ($decompressed = @gzinflate($gzData)))

    does this really need to code that php file again to get it working?

    You should continue to do your coding on your own IDEs. WordPress is just a Content Management System.

    If you need support in future please post on the troubleshooting forum: https://wordpress.org/support/forum/how-to-and-troubleshooting/#new-post

    sorry. I 1st installed english version and it only had options to post a comment etc. not manage website. That was my original question.

    After exchanging ideas installed localized version and it had working admin panel so figured that wp can actually do more then just browse pages.

    wouldnt have been 1st time that need to recode partly software that incomtable with latest php if it had obsolite commands. but got it running ok. So sorry again if one question led to another questions.
