I only recently started having a go with building a blog, using Textpattern. I just downloaded the latest stable build of WordPress, as well as Serendipity, to compare it to Textpattern.
How does WordPress compare to Textpattern and Serendipity? Somebody told me that WordPress uses some Pearl in the code, is this true?
I'm using my Windows NT4 Server sp6a hard drive for development (with a Windows 98SE hard drive as my second drive) and I have loaded apache 1.3.29 and php4.32 as well as mysql 3.23.52. I'm developing the blog for my church and their web host uses mysql 3.23.52. They also have mod_rewrite mode listed as a loaded module in apache when I run phpinfo()
I'm a newbie to php, apache and mysql but I'm a part time IT student and I've covered both coldfusion and asp as well as a few programming languages including ANSI C Java so I'm hoping to pick things up as I go along
What are the good tutorials to read?
