I’m currently fiddling around with a droplet I created a few weeks ago. I followed the steps to put a default wordpress install on the droplet. However, Ideally I’d like to use the wordpress install for just my blog, and build my own home page.
I have had a little nose around for how to do this, and it seems to be that if I have my wordpress install in a subfolder (the ‘index.php’ file specifically?) then I can just point people at that from my homepage.
So I connected to my droplet using WinSCP and had a look, in ‘root’ all I have is what I suppose is a file, called ‘WORDPRESS’. I have worked with wordpress before, through GoDaddy, and when using their file explorer it appeared that a wordpress install was actually a series of folders, so that got me wondering whether I even had worpress installed correctly?
In short, does it sound like I have wordpress installed correctly? And how would I go about using wordpress just for a blog page on my site?
(Also, I put distribution as ‘Ubuntu’, but to be honest I wasn’t even sure what ‘distribution’ meant! Ubuntu is just what I appear to be running when I log in to the droplet using PuTTY: 'Welcome to Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS ')
