Support » Installing WordPress » wordpress installed via synaptic

  • LockDoc


    I tried installing wordpress from synaptic but have no idea how to setup or use it like this? I have apache2, mysql, mariaDB, and PHP installed. I am an experienced web developer and a software systems engineer. Does it not work if installed using synaptic? Is it broken when installed that way? I would prefer using the Debian synaptic system to install and update it but it does not install into the apache web directory. It seems to throw parts of it everywhere. Can someone tell me how it works this way?

    WP has documentation on installing WP.

    No, not on this issue it doesn’t. I can install wordpress and customize it without any problems. I used to get paid to do so. I am trying to see how to use it if I install it using synaptic on Debian LINUX. This is what I need help with.

    As far as just installing and using it I have no problems. This is not a simple install issue. I need someone that is familiar with installing wordpress with synaptic on Debian LINUX.

    You should ask on your Linux distro support forum.

    We, on, are advising to use standart installation described on the link above.

    Various package managers are using their own script to install and therefore can have nuances
