	I'm already making notes,  outlining stuff.  The starting
	point is that the user ALREADY has his own website[s].  It
	occured to me while I was soaking away the pains in my antique
	bones last night that in order to sho wthe BSD user howto host
	his own installation of wordpress _from scratch*, i would need to 
	cover mysql, php5, _Plus_ the slew of stuff that has to do with 
	apache and DNS .... and the whole truckload of stuff.   Too much.

	(There really is a great wealth of knowledge in us as a group;
	we could create an online self-published how-to book and sell on
	amazon.com ---every penny going to the FBSD Foundation.)

	Still, other than having an up-to-date ports tree; my how-to
	will include things like having the right mysql, php5-mysql,
	and unpacking the wordpress files in the right place.  --Oh,
	and selling up the database stuff too.
