WordPress is a free and open source blogging and website application works with MySQL database and PHP. Now WordPress is one of the widely used website/blogging platform that features a wide range of plugins and template support, themes, widgets, multi-users and many more.

This article is a step by step guide to install and configure a WordPress blog/website on your Linux platform. I used CentOS 6 version to test this configurations with Wordpress version 3.4.1. And this configuration will word on CentOS6/5 versions and Fedora17/16/15/14 versions. A MySQL database (server) is required to perform back end database operations. Read my articles about installing MySQL Server and configuring MySQL server on CentOS linux.
You need to add EPEL repository to your Linux server to install wordpress packages from EPEL repository. Read my article about setting up EPEL repository in CentOS Linux.
