installing Wordpress on a newer Uniform Server version


Recommended Posts

Hi :-) right now I'm doing my local wordpress dev stuff on the older uniform server 4.0 mona and I would really like to get wordpress going on one of the newer versions of uniform server and also set it up so that ports other than 80 and 3306 are used - if anyone minds telling me what I need to know to do this I would be Totally grateful :-)


thanks, megan

Set-up Uniform server to use different ports

1] Extract Uniserver 5.6.16

2] Run tray menu (Double click Start.exe)

3] Left click tray menu > Advanced > Move Servers multi-server operation

Press enter to all user inputs. Alternatively you can change the default values offered.

Ports are incremented, executables renamed and tray menu renumbered.

Note: At any time you can check port values as follows:

Left click tray menu > Server Status


4] Port test: Ports may be in use by another application to run Uniform Server these must be free. Run Run_pre_check.exe

If any ports are in use repeat step 3]


5] With ports free run Uniform Server

Left click tray menu > Start Uniform Server


Install Wordpress see Wiki Page:


6] Extract wordpress-3.0.3.zip

7] Pre-Installation 1: Copy folder wordpress-3.0.3\wordpress and all its content to Uniform Server root folder UniServer\www

8] Pre-Installation 2: Navigate to folder UniServer\www\wordpress

9] Rename file wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php

10] Edit this renamed file (wp-config.php) as follows:

Change these lines:


/** The name of the database for WordPress */

define('DB_NAME', 'database_name_here');


/** MySQL database username */

define('DB_USER', 'username_here');


/** MySQL database password */

define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password_here');


/** MySQL hostname */

define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');




define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress');


/** MySQL database username */

define('DB_USER', 'root');


/** MySQL database password */

define('DB_PASSWORD', 'root');


/** MySQL hostname */

define('DB_HOST', '');


Assumes you are using the default MySQL user and password root and root respectively.

Assumes MySQL port is set to 3307 (check using Server Status see step 3)


11] Installation - Create a WordPress Database named "wordpress"


12] Installation: Assumes Apache port is set to 81 (check using Server Status see step 3)

13] To start the WordPress installation process type http://localhost:81/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php

Enter details for example:


Site Title: UniCenter Test

Username: admin

Password, twice: root66

Your E-mail: test@ztest.com


Click Install Wordpress

You will see Success! displayed

Thats it.


Note: Remember to use the port you set (eg 81 )

Site: http://localhost:81/wordpress/

Login: http://localhost:81/wordpress/wp-login.php



All the best

Ric :)
