Step 1: Edit the wp-config.php file
After creating a database, rename the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php, and enter the database-related information.
Step 2: Upload the files
Upload the folder’s contents to where you wish to install the Pro Package.
It should look like this when you’re done:
Step 3: Create a blank .htaccess file
Fetch this blank .htaccess file if you don’t know how to create one.
To use permalinks, you’ll need to drop this file into your site’s root directory, and make it writable by the server. You’ll later need to visit options / permalinks in the admin area.
Step 4: (optional) Change a few permissions
The following folders should be writable by the server (chmod 777):
uploads uploads/File uploads/Flash uploads/Image uploads/Media wp-content wp-content/cache wp-content/gravatars
The following files should also be writable (chmod 666):
.htaccess sitemap.xml sitemap.xml.gz wp-config.php wp-content/wp-cache-config.php
If you skip this step, the following features will not work: Permalinks, uploads, google sitemap, and the advanced cache.
Step 5: Install WordPress
Go through the normal WordPress installation by visiting your site.
Don’t forget to note down your admin user’s password.
Be sure to check the Semiologic documentation.
Step 6: Enjoy
Log into your site to trigger the Semiologic autoinstaller.
If your site is not working by now, notice the FAQ in the support section. It covers the frequently encountered installation issues.
You’re safe to assume there are no conflicts, crashes, or risks of loss of data if I do not mention them explicitely.
Step 1: Upload the files
Upload the files to the directory in which you wish to install the Pro Package.
If (and only if) you are using Countdown v.1.5 or earlier, backup your dates by pasting them in a text file. You will loose them if you fail to do this.
Step 2: Go through the WordPress upgrade if necessary
Visit your site’s admin area. WordPress will prompt you to upgrade your database if necessary.
Step 3: Reactivate WP-Cache
Upgrading overwrites the wp-cache config file, and disables the cache as a result.
You can avoid this, delete the following file before uploading your Pro Package update:
