Installing WordPress Manually on Dreamhost in Less than 5 Minutes

[Like the quality of the screencast? I use the Screenflow app for it!]

I thought it would be helpful for new bloggers who were venturing into self-hosted WordPress installations to actually show how this might happen in a live environment.

For example, in the above video, I show how easy it can be for a novice to get their own WordPress-powered blog up and running with speed; in less than 5 minutes (or so).

Pretty sweet, right?

For this specific example I’ll be using Dreamhost, which is one of many web hosting providers that you can choose from. The process for installing WordPress on these other hosts is very similar, and many like Dreamhost have 1-click installers.

Is this helpful and/or useful? If so, I can probably create a few more on some of the major hosting providers out there.

Let me know! Have a great time and if you have any questions just drop them in the comments.

Rock on.
