These are notes on Administering WordPress on Magnet.
In general follow the standard Installation Steps, with the following details.
To create the database I used the command-line method. Access the database as root:
When editing wp-config.php, change the DB_HOST setting from 'localhost' to '127.0.0.1'. Magnet doesn't seem to be resolving localhost properly, so the IP address is a work-around.
To allow WordPress to upload images, the wp-content directory should be made group writable:
chmod -R g+rw blog/wp-content
Notes on Moving a WordPress Blog
Before moving the blog, login as an administrator and in Settings/General, change the WordPress and Blog URLs to the new location.
After moving the blog, you may need to adjust the Upload paths in Settings/Misc.
