Howdy,

I’d like to take a moment to let anybody who cares know that I’ve gotten a website setup at http://www.derekhildreth.com and/or http://www.sendderek.com. There, you’ll have a chance to get to learn about me and my hobbies. One of the reasons I wanted the website was to get all of my links into one place so that my friends and family could find my pictures, videos, music, etc easier. Also, I thought it was valuable to me to have a website in my own name that potential employers could have a place to download my resume and parts of my portfolio.

On the technical side, I registered the domain name through godaddy.com and it’s hosted by justfree.com. I don’t have as much time as I used to, so I used a template I found through openwebdesign.com called Busy City by JJenZz.  My website utilizes a java program called LightBox2 which adds a touch of Web 2.0 to the site and I customized it to my liking with the BlueFish editor.  So, basically, I have found my own little piece of the internet for $7 a year. My hosting and design was totally free and in the mindset of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software).

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the new resource as much as I do. Be sure to bookmark it as it will be the one bookmark to rule everything that is Derek Hildreth.

Thanks for listening,
Derek

I’m using Fedora 8 to accomplish this, but your distribution of Linux is probably very similar. I try to write my tutorials so that anybody with any distribution can accomplish the task. It may not be identical, but the principles are usually the same….

This tutorial is intended to help guide new web masters (like myself) in getting their own totally free, self-hosted WordPress.org blog up and running. I’m using Fedora 8 to accomplish this, but your distribution of Linux is probably very similar. In fact, a great guide for Ubuntu is located here on their wiki. I try to write my tutorials so that anybody with any distribution can accomplish the task. It may not be identical, but the principles are usually the same. By the way, the setup instructions for Fedora 8 are located in the directory usr/share/doc/wordpress.2.3.2 after installing the wordpress package.

Let’s get started….

This is my attempt at guiding new webmasters (like myself) through the setup process of setting up a simple web server for friends and family (and possibly, with a little bit of creativity on your side, a full-blown web host like those you usually pay for). I will provide commands to execute in the Linux terminal, the programs needed, and some programs that I would highly suggest….
