WordPress fast setup initialize

Preparation for WordPress installation



In order for WordPress to be installed on a server computer, MySQL data definition and codes written in php programming language are required. The first step to starting WordPress installation is to install WordPress files on the server computer. Compressed file size of WordPress files is around 14 MB. These files are over 1900 files in javascript, css, images, php and other formats. There are different options available for uploading files to the server.

• Using FTP only: It is the simplest. But you need to wait more for the process to complete.
»Extract the compressed WordPress file to your computer.
»Upload a large number of files to individual server via FTP.

• Using cPanel: Faster. But you need to have cPanel interface.
»Upload the single compressed file to your server.
»Extract the compressed file in the server with the file manager.

How does it works?



This php script downloads the WordPress zip file directly to the server. and extracts (extracts) inside the server with php command.

  1. Hi, on Wordpress.org I found the plugin "Import CDN-Remote Images" By Atakan Au.
    It uses only Cloudinary as a cdn, do you intent to extend it to use Google Photos as well ?
    Thank you.

    1. Hello.
      Unfortunately, there is not a way to fetch image list from Google Photos.
