What is WordPress?

WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time. WordPress is semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability.

WordPress Features

WordPress has a templating system, which includes widgets that can be rearranged without editing PHP or HTML code, as well as themes that can be installed and switched between. The PHP and HTML code in themes can also be edited for more advanced customizations. WordPress also features integrated link management; a search engine-friendly, clean permalink structure; the ability to assign nested, multiple categories to articles; multiple author capability; and support for tagging of posts and articles. WordPress also supports the Trackback and Pingback standards for displaying links to other sites that have themselves linked to a post or article. Finally, WordPress has a rich plugin architecture which allows users and developers to extend its functionality beyond the features that come as part of the base install.

WordPress Latest Release

The latest release of WordPress is version 2.7, released on 11 December 2008.

Multi Blogging With WordPress

WordPress supports one weblog per installation, though multiple concurrent copies may be run from different directories if configured to use separate database tables.

WordPress Multi-User (WordPress MU, a.k.a. WPMU) is a fork of WordPress created to allow simultaneous blogs to exist within one installation. WordPress MU makes it possible for anyone with a website to host their own blogging community, control, and moderate all the blogs from a single dashboard. WordPress MU adds eight new data tables for each blog.

WordPress Installation Requirements

You need to ensure that your hosting package does have one new MSSQL database available for the installation. Without the accessibility of the MSSQL database, the free installation will not work and hence, your WordPress cannot be installed. It requires Windows 2003 hosting with IIS 6 hosting compatible, Windows 2008 hosting with IIS 7.0 hosting compatible in ASP.NET web hosting plans.
