Reproducible: Always

Wordpress requires:
* PHP 4.1 or greater
* MySQL 3.23.23 or greater
* The mod_rewrite Apache module

A comprehensive installation guide:

Here's an upgrade guide:

Actually, considering the very involved upgrade path, I'd like to see this in ".mask purgatory" for a bit, and unmask once the crying over lost blogs dies down ;) .

Comment 3 Eric Chu 2005-03-17 12:20:58 UTC
Is this ebuild going to be updated?
Comment 4 Jesse Adelman 2005-03-29 12:15:19 UTC
Used this e-build, and works for me, but that is on a fresh install, not an upgrade, FYI.
Comment 5 emory stuart taylor 2005-03-29 19:18:43 UTC
i'm pretty sure that anyone upgrading will be careful since this is their oh-so-precious blog, so I don't see it being a problem.  Plus It's really not bad.  The ebuild works fine for me, so this is generally a good thing(tm) now.  Plus most people have already upgraded who already have wordpress, so I think this ebuild is only going to affect new wordpressers, which is also a good thing.

Me-too-ism enclosed. Whenever you guys can get this into portage, it would be massively appreciated. And thanks again for your excellent work!! :)

I'd add a warning in an einfo to upgraders, though.

AFAIR it was nothing more than following these instructions to keep your old theme:
