  1. Thanks so much for this video! Super helpful! Question, if there is already a default site & we want to develop a new WordPress site on a subdomain that will later be rerouted as the default how do we set this up on the subdomain?

    In your example, you left the "application name" blank as to make the site the root or default. Is there another option besides default web site? Thanks for your help!

  2. Hi. I am getting the error when attempting to update wordpress. What do you think that is from?

    "The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions.: wp-admin/includes/update-core.php"

  3. Nice Demo. I am facing a problem while hosting it on iis.when i write the name of my domain on iis and brows the domain then it redirected to the local host and shows HTTP Error 404. The requested resource is not found.

  4. thanks for tutorial. I have a problem. when it downloads the WP and mySql, it says that the password for the account root is not valid and it failed to connect to database server. and even though I enter the password I just gave it, it wont accept it. What should I do ?

  5. AND what if I had already made my wordpress site offline on xampp and now I want to move it to IIS ….. whats the process, coz I don't want to go through building the site again…its quite tiresome.

  6. Great Video man.

  7. The web platform installer skipped the localhost section and went straight to authentication key section. I filled it in and the wordpress app got downloaded. Problem: I am unable to find the link saying "Launch WordPress". Help! ):

  8. Thanks for the great video !
    I followed your instruction, but the WordPress was installed and run via WebMatrix. My problem is now, that I do not know, how can I release my website with IIS server?
    The WordPress localhost/17564 is just available if the WebMatrix is running.I do not see the connection between WordPress localhost/17564 and IIS default webside localhost/80. (Misrosoft basic site)
    Thanks for your help in advance.
