If your host doesn&rsquo;t support one of these platforms, and <application>mod_rewrite</application>, you will probably be better off switching to one of the many hosting providers that do offer those choices. It is also essential that your host allows making remote connections.</para> <para>You will need access to your site and its directory, and software to proceed with the installation. These are:</para> <itemizedlist> <listitem><para>An access to your web server (via shell or <acronym>FTP</acronym>)</para></listitem> <listitem><para>A text editor</para></listitem> <listitem><para>An <acronym>FTP</acronym> Client (if you need to install &wp; on a remote server)</para></listitem> <listitem><para>Your web browser of choice (Recommended: most recent versions of <ulink url="http:// getfirefox.com/">Firefox</ulink> or <ulink url="http://google.com/chrome">Chrome</ulink>)</para></listitem> </itemizedlist> <para>Prerequisite for Uploading Files: In order to use all the media upload tools to store media files in your &wp; installation, you will have to change the <symbol>chmod</symbol> of <filename>wp-content</filename> folder to <literal>777</literal>. If you have not changed permissions in order to write in <filename>wp-content</filename> folder, you will not be able to use the uploader. <ulink url="http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Image_and_File_Attachments">Instructions for this</ulink> can be found in the &codex;.</para> </sect1> <sect1 id="install.five-minute"> <title>5-Minute Install</title> <para>The Famous 5-minute Install consists of the following steps:</para> <orderedlist> <listitem> <para>Download and unzip the &wp; package, if you haven&rsquo;t already.</para> </listitem> <listitem> <para>Create a database for &wp; on your web server, as well as a &mysql; user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.</para> </listitem>
