WordPress in my Intranet

Posted on January 4, 2007. Filed under: Hacks |

I initially tried installing apache, then php, then mysql and then installing wordpress.  I basically gave up on that (since I needed to focus on other more important tasks), and used xampp (www.apachefriends.org)… a beautiful package that comes with everything in about 30mb (apache, mysql, php, perl, phpmyadmin, ftp server, mercury – for pop3 and smtp).  the default installation is insecure… something that should be addressed after installation.  I use phpmyadmin to create the db and user, copy the wordpress folder to the htdocs folder and I am almost done.

Just one hack, the wordpress setup said that “newuser@localhost” was an invalid email id… so I edited the \winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file and added “127.0.0.1 localhost.com” and used newuser@localhost.com as the email id.

I am doing this to setup an intranet blog for the managers and team leads to post messages of general interest everyone to follow up on… should allow employees to follow what the big guys are doing… when they have the time… and should get the big guys things down in writing. (hmm… maybe I should remove the delete_post links!)
