Configure a Database
Create a Database
First, we need to create a database for our WordPress site. Skip this step if you have already created a database.
Once CUBRID is installed, the CUBRID Service Tray icon appears on your system tray. Run the CUBRID Manager by [right clicking on the CUBRID Service Tray > Tools > CUBRID Manager] as shown below, if you are on Windows OS, or type cubridmanager in the terminal, if you are on Linux environment.
After you login to the CUBRID Manager, the following window appears. With the CUBRID Manager, you can manage databases, tables, users, etc.
To create a database, select the localhost or the Databases in the left Hosts panel, then choose [Action > Create Database] on the menu. The following popup dialog box will appear. Type a database name you want to create for your WordPress site (in our case it is wordpress), then click [Next] button.
Click [Next] to continue the Database Creation process.
To complete this process click [Finish] button. It might take a while to create a database.
If the database is successfully create, you should see it in the left Hosts panel.
Create a User
When a new database is created in CUBRID, users called dba and public are automatically created. It is always recommended to have a separate user for each database. For this purpose, we will add a new user for our WordPress database.
To create a new user, right click on the Users item and select the [Create User] menu item as shown below.
Type a user name and password and click [OK]. Remember this username and password. You will need them when installing WordPress.
Once a new user is added, you will see it listed in the Hosts panel under the Users item. This step will conclude our Database Configuration. We will start the WordPress installation.
Input Database Information
Navigate to Web address of your Web Server where you have unzipped WordPress (In our case it is http://127.0.0.1/wordpress. You might have a different address.). When you access the directory with WordPress, the following start page will appear. Click [Create a Configuration File] to begin.
You will see the following page which will list the items you need to know when creating the configuration file. Click [Let's go!].
Here we have to input all information about the WordPress database we have just created. Type the database name you created, then the username and password. The next fields require to enter the Database Host name, Database Port, and Table Prefix. Leave the default values for each of them: localhost, 33000, wp_. Then click [Submit].
If you see the following message, it means you typed the database information correctly. If a different message appears, return back and check if all the information you entered is correct. Once you succeed, click [Run the install].
Enter Site Name
Sine the WordPress site has been created, we need to give it a proper name. Type your [Blog Title] and enter [Your E-mail]. To allow your blog to appear in search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Naver or Daum, select the check box shown below Your E-mail. Then click [Install WordPress].
When the the WordPress installation is completed, you will see the following page. The administrator username is admin and the characters to the right of the [Password] is the temporary administrator password created by WordPress automatically. You will need it to log in for the first time. Click [Log In].
Login the Site
Type admin for the username and the characters displayed in the previous page for the password. Then click [Log In].
The first thing you have to do when you login to the Admin Panel is to change your password. You can change it by clicking [Yes, Take me to my profile page] in the red box shown at the top of the page.
If you navigate to the site itself, you should see the default home page shown below.
