21 <li>Unzip the package in an empty directory and upload everything.</li>
22 <li>Open <span class="file"><a href="wp-admin/install.php">wp-admin/install.php</a></span> in your browser. It will take you through the process to set up a <code>wp-config.php</code> file with your database connection details.
23 <ol>
24 <li>If for some reason this doesn't work, don't worry. It doesn't work on all web hosts. Open up <code>wp-config-sample.php</code> with a text editor like WordPad or similar and fill in your database connection details.</li>
25 <li>Save the file as <code>wp-config.php</code> and upload it.</li>
26 <li>Open <span class="file"><a href="wp-admin/install.php">wp-admin/install.php</a></span> in your browser.</li>
27 </ol>
28 </li>
29 <li>Once the configuration file is set up, the installer will set up the tables needed for your blog. If there is an error, double check your <code>wp-config.php</code> file, and try again. If it fails again, please go to the <a href="http://wordpress.org/support/" title="WordPress support">support forums</a> with as much data as you can gather.</li>
30 <li><strong>If you did not enter a password, note the password given to you.</strong> If you did not provide a username, it will be <code>admin</code>.</li>
31 <li>The installer should then send you to the <a href="wp-login.php">login page</a>. Sign in with the username and password you chose during the installation. If a password was generated for you, you can then click on 'Profile' to change the password.</li>

To set this up go to your &quot;Writing&quot; options screen and fill in the connection details for your secret <abbr title="Post Office Protocol version 3">POP3</abbr> account.

You can do it with <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cron">cron</a>-jobs, or if your host doesn't support it you can look into the various website-monitoring services, and make them check your <code>wp-mail.php</code> <abbr title="Uniform Resource Locator">URL</abbr>.</p>
