Installing WordPress 2.8

Posted by Zura on June 18, 2009

As I purchased this domain about 3 days ago, I decided to try the newest version of WordPress, WordPress 2.8. Why? Yeah, because I see there’s so much improvements. Until now (as my blindness on ITs ..😀 ) drag-and-drop widgets admin interface is the most dominant aspect, followed with fast loading. Others, you can please take a look for the list of features here.

You can please hit below button to download WordPress 2.8 :

But I’m not talking about how to install WordPress to your blog, actually. I’m talking about my experience on how could I install WordPress successfully in my website. I used as my web hosting service. So far, I had 3 domain hosted there :,, and Yes, Co.CC is my favourite to have a free domain. :D  From the past, when I tried to installing WordPress, everything’s go fine (some obstacles of course, because I still newbie on this case). But when I tried to install WordPress 2.8 with 000WebHost’s File Manager, it said that the file is too big. Too big? O ow, tell me about it. Then I tried to upload the wordpress.tar.gz one… The result still about the same, too big. Hey, what’s up here? Okay, without any doubt I tried to upload it via FileZilla. Oh God! The connection is always error/timed out/can’t accept 2 connection at same time, etc. Once it’s connected, uploading WordPress take time for about 8 hours and it still error. What should I do? I want to start and activate this website ASAP, want to see my first website appear on Internet. Yeah, it’s time to think.

I remember that, when I tried to upload wordpress.tar.gz via FileManager, the .tar.gz file is directly transformed as folders and files (but under public_html/wordpress directory, so you have to type on your browser to access my website. I don’t want it ever happen). Then I deleted it. After thinking deeply, I discover a new way… To upload it fast and done successfully. Guess what! If you download, extract it to your computer and open the folder, you will find 3 folders (wp admin, wp content, and wp includes). And here is the shortcut :

  • The first thing I did is, add .htaccess to wordpress folder. Copy paste below script to Notepad and name/save it as .htaccess:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress

  • Add each and every folder (on this case, wp admin, wp content, and wp include) to archieve. So the file should be wp, wp, and wp
  • Upload those three .zip files under public_html directory on FileManager (I use’s file manager). The process won’t go this fast if I use FileZilla
  • After done, it’s time to utilize FileZilla…🙂. Remember to delete wp, wp, and wp first. Then I connected to my website FileZilla software
  • After connected, click the public_html folder and will find wp admin, wp content and wp include folder. What I say… It’s working!!!
  • Now, it’s time to upload the unfolder files such as wp-config.php, wp-register.php, wp-load.php, etc in this directory (public_html).
  • Done!

Soon after the uploading process’s done, then I went to and activate my WordPress account.

Huh, once again I could successfully utilize my brain for something I didn’t know. Perhaps I can learn and know better and better… You too!🙂
