Download wordpress http://wordpress.org/latest.zip
Extract the zip file to a suitable folder where you want the website to run from e.g. d:\data\intranet
Setup an IIS website and point to this folder. See video for instructions on setting up an IIS website
Rename the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php
You will then have a wordpress web folder that looks like this…
Open up the MySQL command prompt and run each of the following commands:
CREATE DATABASE wp;
CREATE USER ‘wpuser’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘MyPassword’;
SET PASSWORD FOR ‘wpuser’@’localhost’ = OLD_PASSWORD(‘MyPassword’);
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON wp.* TO ‘wpuser’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘MyPassword’;
Now edit wp-config.php with notepad and enter the database name, username, password and host details you just created.
Configure dns or your hosts file to point to the server for the website name
Run the WordPress installation script by accessing wp-admin/install.php in your favorite web browser
Now in your webbrowser you can go to your new wordpress website.
Next I’ll cover installing add-ins and configuring wordpress for an intranet.
