The following tutorial was designed for and presented as part of the curriculum for Stanford University’s Comm 217: Digital Journalism class.
It only covers installing WordPress.org (the self-hosted, single user WordPress variant) on a Cpanel-based hosting platform. In this case, we are using Hostmonster.com.
In later tutorials, we will be covering basic web-development tools and WordPress administration, such as theme, widget and plug-in selection. This is just about installing and getting things running. It has been pared down to only the necessary steps.

Also, for even more Stanfordy fun, you can download the PDF of the “Cosmology of the modern Word Press Web” preso I gave in class, without all my pesky chatter.
Now, installing Word Press in 10 slides.
