Installing WordPress with Subversion



To install a fresh copy of WordPress, type the following at your command prompt, starting from the directory above where you want to install WordPress. These commands will create a directory "blog" for your blog, and then check out (Subversion command "co"), or extract from the repository, the stable version of WordPress you have chosen. Do not type the "$" characters -- they are just indications of the command prompt. Here are the commands (assuming the version you want is 2.9.2):

$ mkdir blog $ cd blog $ svn co .
