Selling wordpress.com to the world
Posted by exodians on March 23, 2008
WordPress as we all know is “just” a program- an application program for the web. A tweeny tiny program about 1.01 megabytes in zipped file. No programming background is needed to use WordPress.
The “Good News” is …WordPress is free.
“They”-the WordPress developers did all the work and “we”- the community will now use what they have developed.
In a nutshell, for WordPress to work, you can either download WordPress, upload it and install it in a computer running various operating systems (Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, OSX and e.t.c.) with Apache and or IIS or any type of webserver apps running side by side with MySQL and PHP.
Or… if you have no idea what we are talking about, just click here and start using WordPress. If you do so, you can disregard words such as PHP, MySQL and Webserver and just start blogging or playing around with the WordPress Control Panel.
