	And when I found the php5-mysql in databases, the Makefile told
	me how everything fitted together.   :-)

	WEll, I'm not sure how many eons ago it's been since the last
	post, but _no_, I did not take a month's vacation ... nor a nap
	Not even a cup of joe.   BUT: Yes, Virginia, there is a Dog...

	After a partial edit of that wp-config.php from the sample.php,
	and filling in the name, "wordpress", the user "wordpress_user,
	and the password "xyz123", a promising WordPress install page
	showed up.

	I have saved a copy of the original config page and have some
	questions that I'll need for when I write up my readable
	tutorial page.  -----I don't think many of you know that for
	heading toward 7 years, I was the lead writer for a Q/A help page
	for newcomers to FreeBSD.  We all can write; it isn't that
	difficult.  But I spent/wasted 15 years of banging away on a
	typewriter writing stuff and editing stuff before I got
	seriously lucky and discovered computers.   I will need help
	from the rest of the list and readers to make my HOW-TO INSTALL 
	WORDPRESS strictly first-rate.  Given that, I should be the last
	person to *ever* invest going into four days on this kind of
	effort.   That said, a straight-up thanks for y'all who have
	helped me with this.-----

	I cut/pasted part of the config page to a yello w notepad.  It
	unfortunately has those unfortunate DOS EOL things with the ^M.  
	[i Figured maybe in pasting the lines, the wasted byte would
	vanish.  Nope.   Anyway, can folks tell me what is meant by
	"Keys and Salts"]  ??

	There are 8 places with define()'s. I can dream up 8 strings or 
	phrases, no problem.  But without getting into the guts of this
	blog stuff, can anybody tell me why I need unique [[ or
	VERY-VERY unique ]] strings?  

	nExt, multiple instances of this blogware.  A day ago i thought
	that one of the wordpress pages would be more than enough, but
	maybe in a year I'll need one on www and a second in journey.
	So in the unlikely event should I tag:

	``$table_prefix= 'wp_';'' with ``$table_prefix = 'wp0_';'' ?
	(O think it is better to plan ahead now.  Just in case.)
