    Hey Kharim,

    Great video, it seems WordPress is very easy to install. As I build a lot of niche sites I find installing via Fantastico is the most appropriate way to install websites a lot faster.

    Excellent video Kharim!

    I follow from beginning till the end, although there is one thing i usually do first before doing anything else. It is changing random password to my own.

    Good job!
