In this tutorial, we will install WordPress. If you don’t know what WordPress is, it’s a CMS or Content Management System. CMS’s are scripts you upload and install to your web server. They allow you for you to create large sites quickly without all the programming. For instance, WordPress is a “Blogging” Content Management System. After installing, you can write posts, add categories, and much more.

Installing WordPress will open up a whole new world for your website. Most people see WordPress as a Blogging CMS, since that’s what it was created for. But with the endless amount of plugins either free or premium, you can turn your site into a community, business hub, listing website, and much more.
