Tuen's Blog

Infrequent diary of a procrastinator

And it begins…

Written By: Tuen - Jul• 25•07

Woah!  I can’t believe I’ve managed to get this wordpress blog up and running, and on my own apache web server too!  I had only recently tried running my own web server, then I installed php and finally mysql.  And I was looking for a blog template when I found wordpress.  Can you imagine my delight at finding a package that ran almost right out of the box on my setup?  Great feeling.

 I did have some initial problems installing and getting wordpress to run.  For those of you who are technical, two particular problems came up.  One was that I had to figure out how to make index.php the default file to be served, instead of index.html.  The other was that I had this error which said that mysql was not installed in php?!  Well it turned out that I was using the newer extension mod_mysqli and I had to enable mod_mysql as well.  I hope having them both on won’t cause any problems!

    Excellent blog. So, my suggestion about buying the Claritas media centre may be a good idea now especially with the 1TB disk space. :)
