UPDATE: With the latest tools, you no longer need to follow the arduous steps discussed in this post. All blog pacakge comes with a premium plugin that makes the installation quick and easy. You only need to create a MySQL database (as described on Step 1 below) and then upload the blog installation files to your webhost (Step 3).
No more messing with codes, SQL file, and myPHPadmin.
If you want to place it on a whole domain name the site would appear as: http://www.thedomain.com. If you want this set up, then you should buy a new domain name. The advantage of this is that you can easily sell the site in the future.
If you want it on a sub-domain the site will be: http://skincare.bmagz.com. No need to buy a new domain as you could put it on an existing domain you own. It’s hard to sell a site on a sub-domain. Maybe you can rent it.
If you want it on a subdirectory it would be: http://www.biabranding.com/weightloss/. No need to buy a new domain as you could put it on an existing domain you own.
Skip STEP 1 and STEP 2 if you are going to install or have already installed WordPress using Fantastico De Luxe or QuickInstall. Just scroll down to STEP 3.
Please refer to the tutorial on “WordPress Installation Using Fantastico De Luxe
If you are on HostGator refer to “WordPress Installation Using QuickInstall
Proceed only to step to STEP 1 if you choose to install everything manually. (Something I would prefer doing).
Step 1. Create A MySQL Databse
Step 2. Install WordPress Manually
Step 3. Upload Contents of the “Files To Upload” Folder
Step 4. Edit SQL File
