|Server Requirements for Wordpress|
1. Server requirements for Wordpress
To run a Wordpress on your server, you need PHP version 4.3 or greater and MySQL version 4.0 or greater. Apache mod_rewrite module is optional for clean URIs (aka. Permalinks). That’s all! Wordpress could run on any server that supports PHP and MySQL, but Apache or Litespeed is recommended as the most robust and featureful server.

Here is a simple tutorial for you to build your own Wordpress site.
(a) First of all, if you haven’t got a copy of Wordpress, you need to download the package, and unzip it.
(b) You should create a database for Wordpress on your web server. A MySQL user to access and modify it with all privileges is also required.
