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

Why famous 5 minuet installation over 1 click installation?

Is there any benefit of the famous 5 minute installation over the one click installation?

2 Answers

They both do the same thing for our intents and purposes. It is preferable to know how to do the five minute install because one click is only offered by specific hosts and is not always available. For example, if you were to build your own server or local development platform, you would need to know the five minute install because one click would not be available.

Hope this helps!

l totally agree with Stephen Van Delinder . Not all host provide this 5 click install. it also worth knowing about 5 minutes install if you want to be a developer who can work in team or alone developing locally. Also do bare in mind that the video does not cover the numerous apps out there can you can use to install wordpress. Depending on which of these that you use the steps would be less.

My advice is is not to try cut corners and learn the 5 minutes install. This would give you a firm understanding and make you a good a developer which l suppose is why you are here to learn.
