Oops! Couldn't run phpmyadmin in broswer? OK used alternatives by
mysqlcommand line. Entered below to create a database for my trial WP install.
CREATE DATABASE databasename;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON databasename.* TO "wordpressusername"@"hostname" IDENTIFIED BY "password";
Currently I don't have a domain name ready for this so I used just ip for "hostname".
/var/www/checked out svn copy of WordPress by entering
svn co http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/trunk/ .To get files into the right place it is important that I have
cdto that new folder before checking out the files.
After that I changed root folder to
/var/www/wp/such that I could run install at
http://my.trial.ip.address/wp-admin/install. I have my WP running at last.
Next I'll try securing my server.
PS: I'm waiting for my slice from SliceHost which is a 256slice plan with 256M RAM, 10G storage and 100G traffic for $20. For nearly the same (except 200G traffic) I'll have to spend Euro 40.01 per month.
