Hello World! Finally I have setup my blog using my name as the domain name. Luckily szehau.com is still available. Why my first post was named “Hello World”? This is the default post after WordPress was installed. I decided to keep this title as the first post. Still remember in most of the programming language’s tutorials, the first chapter always teach the reader to write a “Hello World” program.
Before I install WordPress in my web hosting, I did a search at google to look for a theme for wordpress, “simple wordpress theme” and looking for a theme that is simple and nice. Finally I found this theme, Relaxation by John Wrana. The installation of WordPress and Relaxation are very simple.
To install WordPress:
- Create a empty database for your blog.
- Download WordPress and unzip it to a folder.
wp-config-sample.phpto modify the appropriate variables.
- Save the modification as
- Upload all the files to your web hosting using FTP program.
- Upload an empty file called
.htaccessto your blog directory and make sure it is writable (this is to enable URL rewrite).
- Install your blog at
www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin/install.phpand follow the instruction on screen.
- Log in to your blog at
www.yourdomain.com/wp-login.phpand you can start play around with it.
To install Relaxation theme:
- Download Relaxation and unzip it to a folder.
- Upload the folder
\Relaxation\WordPress\relaxationto your web hosting’s
www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin/themes.phpchoose Relaaxation 1 as your blog’s theme.
That’s all for installation. The installation process only took me 10 minutes.
Let’s go back to “Hello World!”. Below are the “Hello World!” in different languages (I mean programming languages :)) that I know:
/* C */
printf ("Hello World!\n");
cout < < "Hello World!" << endl;
Console.Writeln ("Hello World!");
System.out.println ("Hello World");
PRINT "Hello World!"
REM PC DOS
echo Hello World!
echo Hello World!
Do you have any that I don’t know? Share with me. :)
