Description of problem:
Installing the package does not appear to result in a functioning wordpress
install without additional action, and /usr/share/doc/wordpress-xxx does not
appear to contain correct instructions for completing the installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the wordpress package.
2. Visit http://localhost/ from the web-server. (result A)
3. View the documentation in /usr/share/doc/wordpress-xxx (result B)
A. The default Test Page for Apache on Fedora Core appears.
B. The documentation contains incorrect installation instructions, which appear
to be inherited from upstream, but which do not work given the custom install
paths used by the package.
A. A working wordpress blog, an installation page, or brief instructions on how
to complete the install or where to find more info should appear.
B. The documentation should detail any manual steps required to complete the
Result A is correct. You have to browse to http://localhost/wordpress/ to get
anywhere in the Wordpress heirarchy. I'll look into revising the readme doc.
Added a README file with instructions per a vanialls FC5 install. When the new
package is available, please let me know if the README is accurate.
