You have to laugh. At the WordPress.org website they say WordPress is famously easy to install! When you download the .zip or .targz file what you get is a folder full of .php files with no hint or instructions where to start or even what is what, let alone what to click on. Clicking on the Index.php file just opens DreamWeaver or TextMate. What is it with developers? How do they expect to program for users when they can't even think through the process of starting the thing up, let alone what happens after that.

Even after reviewing the Bitnami website and Wikipedia page, I don’t understand what better about this than using the actual WordPress installer. People that don’t know what they’re doing from a code standpoint aren’t going to use this and just use Wordpress.com instead. People that do code can install WP the regular way just as quickly as using this. So what’s the point?

I'd really like to use it, but I need Wordpress 3.2.1. Any ideas where to get this previous version?

WordPress 3.0.4 Critical Update just came out. It is suggested that everyone update immediately. The email I received stressed the urgency. I guess that's why they call it "critical".

You don't install it. It's a bunch of php files and a database. It's meant for people who know how to use a server. If you don't like it, just go to wordpress.com and use the service they provide online. No need to install then. php is processed by a server into the data sent to a client machine. i.e. it allows the server to query a database and insert data into a webpage when the page is requested (amongst many other things). Browsers don't interpret php, and it makes no sense to try to open a php file other than to edit it. You need to be running something like Apache with mod_php to interpret a php file and serve the result as HTML. For something like Wordpress you'll need a MySQL database too. I don't use Wordpress, but I have tried it out and it -is- easy to set up a Wordpress site compared with some of the alternatives. So you see there's little point in making something like wordpress installable. Even if it was, you still need to have the expertise to administer to it. Anybody who can do that knows how to use the zipped up distro. If you still want to use it, then a quick google for "setting up wordpress" yields 61.6 million results, the first page of which seems pretty good. If you really want to do it on a mac then I recommend MacPorts to install a newer Apache than Snow Leopard bundles along with mod_php and MySQL. It's a learning curve but it can be enjoyable.

Yes, I discovered that after I posted. Trouble with these forums. Once it's out there, it's out there.

Ha! Ain't that the truth. I've posted some really dumb stuff and seconds after realised what I'd done, and that it's too late.

@Rubaiyat: I happen to think that you make an excellent point, which not only applies to WordPress, but all too often to the entire Open Source community. Developers in the Open Source community tend to be so keen to concentrate on the code that they often ignore the documentation, education of users, and marketing aspects of their products. It's almost as if they do not really want to reach a market: they just want to show off their code to other nerds and geeks. This is a major attitudinal flaw afflicting the whole Open Source world. While Mark Everritt gives a good explanation for the technical twists and turns one might have to take to install one such Open Source program, all he really accomplishes with his insightful remarks is to reinforce the narrow-minded geekiness of many Open Source applications that keep them from being adopted in the marketplace. If the developers had even been considerate enough of others to include the kind of instructions which Mark does, perhaps in an accompanying ReadMe.txt (remember those?), then you would not have found yourself so confused and frustrated. Your feelings are valid and justified; the narrow-minded attitude of Open Source developers who fail to make installation easy, or who even fail to include information on how to install an application at all, is short-sighted and self-destructive. It's one thing to design an application to be so geeky that, as Mark points out, "it's meant for people who know how to use a server." But it's another thing altogether to be so elitist and egotistical about developing such nerdy applications that you let the average user download your application, while also neglecting to tell that user what the pre-requisite level of computer savviness is required to even install the damn thing. Until and unless the Open Source community as a whole grasps this fact, they will condemn themselves and their products to the fringes of their industry, as elitists of all types tend to do.
