I am tying to install wp on my linux box. It is a very straightforward desktop system running iceweasel browser and open office.
I just want a local install (what I think is http://localhost)
I looked on a few web pages and installed LAMP and got all that working ok – did the test and when I put http://localhost in the url the browser window displays the words:
This is the default web page for this server.
The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.’
So far so good.
I then downloaded the WP package using the debian package manager and it installed it to usr/share/wordpress
I looked at the 5 minute install but none of that works for me sorry, I have probably missed something.
I presume I need to tell the apache2 thing where wordpress is do I?
I went to etc/apache2/sites-enabled and found 000-default which I edited to say DocumentRoot usr/share/wordpress
the rest of the file I left alone.
if I put http://localhost/wordpress/ as the url it says
The requested URL /wordpress/ was not found on this server.’
Which files would need to be changed?
Thanks very much for any help you can give.
