WordPress Portsmouth Online Meetup – 22nd July 2020 – Build your own WordPress website – Part Two

Join the WordPress Portsmouth Meetup on 22nd July 2020 for “Build your own WordPress website – Part Two”.

Following last month’s meetup with Vicki Jakes’ talk entitled “Build your own WordPress website in 21 steps” we’re going to go into a lot more detail on some of the steps. Intricate technical stuff.

Step 19 – Back Site up – Paul Tansom’s talk on using MySQL command line… and backups revisited.

Step 17 – Add an SSL Certificate – Scott McKeown ( redIT ) … and steps involved in getting the secure icon.

plus more detail on other steps, chosen from the floor, as time permits.

If you missed last month’s meetup you may be pleased to hear that it was recorded. The video is now published, with timings, on our YouTube channel.

View in YouTube to easily find each step.

The timings, including the 21 steps, are also published on the webite.
