FAQ About Working with WordPress
- How can I find out if I have mod_rewrite?
- To get information about your server, you can use the phpinfo() function: 1. Paste this into text editor 2. Save as info.php 3. Upload to server. Visit in your browser (www.example.com/info.php)
- How long is the release cycle of WordPress?
- A major release of WordPress happens every 6 months or so. Suggest and vote on ideas for future releases at the WordPress Extend Ideas site. Also refer WordPress Versions for the chronologically listed versions of WordPress along with the Change Log information on new features and improvements in each version. There are the future releases and links to their respective milestones in the bug tracker.
- Does the 644 permissions on wp-config.php compromise the username and password to all other users on my shared server?
- This is a limitation of the way PHP is set up on your server. If you previously used Movable Type, Perl was probably set up with suexec so Movable Type executed as your user. In this case, PHP is running as the web server user, which is why it has to be at least 444. There is phpsuexec but it seems many hosts don’t use it.
- How do I redirect users back to my blog's main page after they login?
- By default, WordPress reroutes a registered user to the Administration Screens after they log into the blog. To change the page, there are WordPress Plugins that can handle the redirect, or you can set the Theme function to handle it. See Function_Reference/wp_login_url.
