WordPress How to Make a Website with WordPress Installing WordPress The Famous 5-Minute WordPress Install

What key advantage(s) to 5-minute install?

As the 1-click install obviously takes less time is less likely to have screw-ups while setting it up, why would one choose to go the 5-minute install route? I don't recall that being covered. Thanks!

Hi, Charles:

The key advantage is customization, especially if your hosting needs involves separating a Wordpress installation from other web applications involving the the same domain or account.

The default database settings and other defaults of the 1-click install associated with databases can be problematic for some people, especially if the domain is already active.

That makes sense. Now I understand. Thanks Kevin.

No problem. :)
