Open Office has an HTML editor build into Writer.

Thanks guys.
@sledgehammer:  Downloaded wordpress.  Unfortunately neither Seamonkey nor Firefox knew what to do with .php files.
@retired1af:  Open Office is not available in gslapt.  Installed Libre Office:  it can save writer and calc files as html files.

Straybit,

What are you trying to do in wordpress that is not working for you?  It works fine for my purposes on my VL 7.1 machine.

I want to set up a set of web pages as an indication of what our organization could do with one.

Since my last post, I have installed php but still not able to click on install.php to set it up.  It either opens in geany or, if I try to open in SeaMonkey or Firefox, they don't know what to do with them.  They keep asking what program to open the file with.

Not sure I understand.  I am no web page or wordpress expert.  All I know is I used wordpress out of the box and VL 7.1 out of the box and both stock programs seemed to work together well.  There is a bit of a learning curve with wordpress.  We have a  wordpress users group here that meets for a couple of hours once a month.  If you can work up some kind of a specific question or two, I can ask those experts next meeting.  I think most lay people and a lot of experts are using wordpress now.

If this is for a web application, normally you'd have to run the install.php on a server running Apache (with MySQL and PHP installed as well).

I did not find Apache on gslpat, although there are some with some suffixes.  Would one of these be the Apache Server?  Or do I need to get it some where else?

Finally got httpd and php running (I hope!).  I believe that I still have to put it into rc.d or rc.n.
Attempting to install wordpress:
Code: [Select]
vector:/~/Downloads/wordpress/wp-admin
bruce:$ ./install.php
bash: ./install.php: Permission denied
vector:/~/Downloads/wordpress/wp-admin
bruce:$ su
Password:
You are working as root
vector://home/bruce/Downloads/wordpress/wp-admin
root:# apachectl restart
vector://home/bruce/Downloads/wordpress/wp-admin
root:# ./install.php                   
bash: ./install.php: Permission denied
Obviously, I'm still doing something wrong - but what?

The installer is normally run from a browser.

Generally, you copy the files to the public_html directory and then run the installer from the browser.

Straybit,

I can't remember what I did to install wordpress but I think in went to wordpress.org in firefox and downloaded it, following instructions.  I do recall quite a few starts and stops before I got it working.
