Latest commit e4a7c0a Oct 20, 2016 @rachelbaker rachelbaker REST API: Introduce the Content API endpoints.
REST API endpoints for your WordPress content. These endpoints provide machine-readable external access to your WordPress site with a clear, standards-driven interface, allowing new and innovative apps for interacting with your site. These endpoints support all of the following:
- Posts: Read and write access to all post data, for all types of post-based data, including pages and media.
- Comments: Read and write access to all comment data. This includes pingbacks and trackbacks.
- Terms: Read and write access to all term data.
- Users: Read and write access to all user data. This includes public access to some data for post authors.
- Meta: Read and write access to metadata for posts, comments, terms, and users, on an opt-in basis from plugins.
- Settings: Read and write access to settings, on an opt-in basis from plugins and core. This enables API management of key site content values that are technically stored in options, such as site title and byline.

Love your REST API, WordPress!  The infrastructure says, "Let's do lunch!" but the content API endpoints say, "You're paying!"

<h2>First Things First</h2>
<p>Welcome. WordPress is a very special project to me. Every developer and contributor adds something unique to the mix, and together we create something beautiful that I&#8217;m proud to be a part of. Thousands of hours have gone into WordPress, and we&#8217;re dedicated to making it better every day. Thank you for making it part of your world.</p>
<p style="text-align: right">&#8212; Matt Mullenweg</p>

<h2>Installation: Famous 5-minute install</h2>
	<li>Unzip the package in an empty directory and upload everything.</li>
	<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.
			<li>If for some reason this doesn&#8217;t work, don&#8217;t worry. It doesn&#8217;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>
			<li>Save the file as <code>wp-config.php</code> and upload it.</li>
			<li>Open <span class="file"><a href="wp-admin/install.php">wp-admin/install.php</a></span> in your browser.</li>
	<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="" title="WordPress support">support forums</a> with as much data as you can gather.</li>
	<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>
	<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 &#8220;Profile&#8221; to change the password.</li>

<h3>Using the Automatic Updater</h3>
<p>If you are updating from version 2.7 or higher, you can use the automatic updater:</p>
	<li>Open <span class="file"><a href="wp-admin/update-core.php">wp-admin/update-core.php</a></span> in your browser and follow the instructions.</li>
	<li>You wanted more, perhaps? That&#8217;s it!</li>

<h3>Updating Manually</h3>
	<li>Before you update anything, make sure you have backup copies of any files you may have modified such as <code>index.php</code>.</li>
	<li>Delete your old WordPress files, saving ones you&#8217;ve modified.</li>
	<li>Upload the new files.</li>
	<li>Point your browser to <span class="file"><a href="wp-admin/upgrade.php">/wp-admin/upgrade.php</a>.</span></li>

<h2>Migrating from other systems</h2>
<p>WordPress can <a href="">import from a number of systems</a>. First you need to get WordPress installed and working as described above, before using <a href="wp-admin/import.php" title="Import to WordPress">our import tools</a>.</p>

	<li><a href="">MySQL</a> version <strong>5.0</strong> or higher.</li>

	<li><a href="">MySQL</a> version <strong>5.6</strong> or higher.</li>
	<li>The <a href="">mod_rewrite</a> Apache module.</li>
	<li>A link to <a href=""></a> on your site.</li>
