No WP in Debian? No Biggie.

Bastian Venthur is writing about Debian Etch not including a WordPress package. Apparently the Security Team feels it will be a big hassle, despite Kai Hendry vow to keep it secure. Oh well.

I’m not too concerned because I get WordPress from the wordpress download page, which is surprisingly easy. Because it’s PHP, there is nothing to compile. Simply drop the files on your web server and direct your browser to the setup file. WordPress automates the setting up of your database. Easy-peasy.

So, Venthur, my solution to you is to stick with WordPress. Your WP Dashboard will let you know when there is a new release. Installation takes less than five minutes. Why worry?
