When someone mentions the famous ‘5-minute install’ in reference to installing the WordPress software – either in a blog post or, say… in a book… they are referring to the time it takes to install the software itself.
They are not referring to the time it takes to:
- Investigate computer systems and do a price comparison on different systems
- Decide on the exact computer you want to buy
- Purchase the computer
- Set up the computer
- Install FTP software
- Purchase and set up your domain name registration
- Obtain a web hosting provider
- Figure out how to use FTP in conjunction with your web hosting services
I’m just sayin’.
BTW – I finally upgraded this blog from 2.3.x to the latest 2.5.1 and it went extremely smooth. *happy*
