THX Elliott , it’s very useful

Matt Dyer says:

I mean without adding the ‘demo’ directory to the URL does WP somehow seek
out the install.php? Please let me know dude. I’m kinda stuck…
Great tutorial by the way!

Matt Dyer says:

I’m just confused that you created the ‘demo’ directory but did not have to
reference that in the URL to run the install.php

The best way to do a WordPress site if self-hosted, it’s under $4 a month
if you sign up here: (b e s t – w o r d p r e s s – h o s t . c o m) and
you can get a free domain for life, Google Adwords credits, and you have
more freedom to manage your own WordPress site than hosting it on WordPress

This video is great! I’m a complete novice and this is the very first
website I have set up. Before viewing your video I spent about 3hrs reading
the WordPress installation guide that just left me confused and and VERY
frustrated. I was about to give when I saw your video. The set up then took
me no more than 5 minutes (excluding upload). Now I am all ready to get
started on designing my site. Thanks again for your help! Great video
