How To Change To WordPress Self-Hosting Part 3 (How To Start Word Press and Manage files)

WordPress is a server-based content management system, or in simple terms it’s a software application that runs on a Web server, which means while the core files that run the app are hosted on a regular server all the content is hosted in a database server running MySQL. 

To run WordPress negatively in your computer BitNami has set up a virtual Web server to run the application itself and a virtual database to run the database. So when you navigate your BitNami WordPress stack your computer spins up both the virtual Web server and MySQL database give you access the end result, is an experience that is almost identical to what you would have if you go to visit a WordPress site live on the web.

You can start up the BitNami WordPress stack in multiple different ways:

One you can go to start all programs navigate down to BitNami WordPress stack click launch BitNami WordPress stack and from here you can click access that BitNami WordPress stack.
You can also just go to your browser and type in local host/WordPress it takes is the same place the standard installation of WordPress.

The only difference between this installation and the one working with WordPress.com is they don't have that WordPress.com toolbar at the very top.

 If you want to log into the backend of your WordPress installation you either go to the address bar or type in WP – admin at the very end click enter, then you get to the login window type in your name and a password.

Or you can go to where press scroll down to Meta and click login you will be taken to the same WordPress log screen. 

The reason why you need to remember that WP – admin link is because for the most part you want to take away this meta-information so people can’t click the login button because that way they can login or try to hack their way into.

 The dashboard it's pretty much identical to the dashboard WordPress.com is one major difference extra button called plug-ins where you can add more plug-ins, and also missing some other buttons on the side like ratings and polls.

Knowing the Word Press Files:
You take a look inside WordPress files in my documents go to BitNami in any see here everything we need to run WordPress you have Apache, MySQL, PHP and other stuff.

Under the apps folder you'll find PHPmyadmin and also WordPress if you open WordPress is the hTdocs which is where WordPress is hosted you will see 3 main folders (WP-admin, WP-content, WP-includes and other stuff)
