How to build my own web site from my wordpress blog !

Exporting, Importing, Settings of WordPress for My BLOG Website!

Posted by Madhurie Singh on September 2, 2009

Once the installation by SimpleScripts of WordPress is complete, I received a mail and a pop up page confirming the site URL and the site administration path. The email sent by SimpleScripts also mentions the password of the database.

This is the Page on successful installation of wordpress.

When I clicked on the URL HTTP://WWW.MadhurieSingh.Com , I was taken to my own site! WOW what feeling! This is what I saw:
MY Blog Page

Earlier I had done some mistake in naming the database. So when I clicked my URL, I was taken to this Default.HTML page!
first look of my site

It’s got My site name and a few ads, that’s all!

Since I am still learning, I glad I did this mistake. I know now that to install wordpress the best way is to let all default settings run initially. Later all these details can be changed.
So I again go back to the SimpleScripts. The page shows my earlier WordPress installation script. I click Uninstall to remove the last installation of database and other details.

When I had tried to access http://www.madhuriesingh.com/wp_admin, it had shown my this page.

Whenever I get this kind of erroneous page, I have the liberty to delete the wordpress script that I had installed last. And start a fresh Install on WordPress.

But this privilege is exercised only because I have not yet announced my website to the world. I am in my testing stage which is the most crucial step. I am in mood to hurry up. I may take 2 more months before I am confident to launch the website http://www.madhuriesingh.com to the world.

Now I have to export the wordpress files from my http://www.madhuriesingh.wordpress.com to my computer.
SO I go to the wordpress blog. Click Export under TOOLS.

An xml file will be downloaded and saved in my computer. wordpress.date.XML

Now come back to my site admin page http://www.madhuriesingh.com/wp-admin page.
Here I Click IMPORT under TOOLS.
Click Import under Tools in WordPress Admin page

I am again taken to the page where I have to click WordPress that is found in the last row.
I click WordPress

I select the xml file which was downloaded as wordpressXXX.xml .

Click wordpress after Import button is clicked

When I click Import button in Tools of wordpress
The uploading of all posts, images etc begin one by one.

And there I am, DONE with my wordpress IMPORT! 🙂

Now when I go back to my site http://www.madhuriesingh.com

I can see the posts written by me with pictures and pages.

The Site Title is still “MY BLOG” 😦

So now I have to change the Settings so that my site looks more personalized.

I click GENERAL SETTINGS and change the BLOG TITLE to “MADHURIE SINGH.COM”

Change the Tag line that always follows the BLOG TITLE to “All about Kids, product review….”

Change other settings, time zone, date and time format etc.

I save the settings and click the WRITING SETTINGS, be enabling everything.
I leave the mail setting untouched and save the setting.

Next I change the READING SETTINGS.
Here there one very important setting to be done in order to have a static homepage, instead of the recent posts that appears in the home page.

I first create a new page with title “Indian Mom’s Review’s for Kids” and add content that I want to appear on my homepage always. I assign this page as Front Page under STATIC Page.
Then I create another page called “RECENT POSTS” and assign it for Posts Page. This page “Recent Page” now will show all my recent posts, instead of the Home page.

I save these settings.

And click Discussion Settings. Here I make sure the comments are nested and needs moderation.

I click save button.

I leave the MEDIA and PRIVACY settings as it is.

Now I click an important setting called PERMALINKS.
This setting allows how the posts will be indexed and appear in the search. It’s important that I change it to
Day and name http://www.madhuriesingh.com/2009/09/02/sample-post/

This way the search engines will be easily searching the file headings instead of some numbers.

Permanent setting of the posts in wordpress site
I save the settings.

The last setting I have to make is under MISCELLANEOUS settings.
This has the path name where all files will be uploaded into my server directory.
Default is wp-content/uploads and I should not touch it unless I am changing my subdirectories.
Then in order to organize the Uploads into months and year folders with time track, I click the other two options too.
Miscellaneous setting of wordpress site

I save the last settings.
Now this is how my Site looks. 🙂

Mission Completed 🙂

In the next post I will be try to install the wordpress into a sub directory by shifting all the wordpress files from root directory i.e /public_html to sub directory say /public_html/only4kid
