Tips When Installing WordPress In Fantastico
1. Don't use "Admin" as the Administrator-username, but some hard to guess (easy to remember) user name. e.g. bbbestadmin333 (no space) . This is not something you can change easily in the WordPress dashboard. You may only change it via the MySQL db admin or some SQL script.
2. I prefer not to install the WordPress in the root folder, I always put something like
"bayarea" (or name or your city with no space: sanjose) in the field of "Install in directory": fremont
If you email me, I can tell the trick how to show the front page of the WordPress installation in the subfolder.
By putting a simple index.php in the root, your visit will see the contents of http://yourdomain.com/sanjose at http://yourdomain.com/ root folder.
