I want to use WordPress to create a web site, used Synaptic Package Manager to install it, now how do I access the program? I searched in Menu, it doesn't come up, is there another step I need to complete?

I created a wordpress site a year ago, but I never installed anything. I did it directly on their website. Are you sure you need to install it?

I must have done it on Windows, wasn't thinking (hey I'm pushing 70). Yeah, you might need to do it differently on Linux. But if you have a windows machine, why not do it there? you can of course access it from any OS through your browser.

Odd - I tried installing it and got an error message during the install.  As expected, there was no "WordPress" in my menus.  Is it possible you got an install error as well?

Note that I ran a `sudo find / -name "?ord?ress"` in the terminal and found a few files / folders with `wordpress` in them, but nothing executable.

A "reinstall" as well as an "uninstall" followed by an "install" caused no improvement, but no error either after the first time.

I've let this question sit here a little while to see what responses appeared. Wordpress works with a Debian (preferable) LAMP server very nicely, and reasonably well on an Ubuntu server. It is not a freestanding Web Site builder in the sense of your question. You might be more satisfied with something like BlueGriffon if you intend to use Linux Lite as your OS. However with LL -- you should probably consider building a site with LibreOffice first. Many Web space providers offer Wordpress but there is no necessity to install it on your system to use it. If you want your own Wordpress for building off the Web first you need your own LAMP server. Use another machine (preferable) or another partition on your present machine. Ethernet the two machines together and you can build and learn all you want. Below are links which will guide you through a correct installation of a Debian Lamp server with a Debian OS which can then have Wordpress installed to it, and a how to build simple web pages with LibreOffice.

trinidad, thank you. I never received a notice of any replies  :( , but eventually ended up setting up a different website through a new hosting company...they provided several programs to build a website as part of their service. I tried them all including Word Press, but it was too complicated and all the "fanciness" wasn't what was needed for this website, just simple static information for an organization. I ended up using Website Builder which was much closer to the WYSIWYG program I had used on windows.
That process was when I finally figured out what you explained. I feel I'm too much of a novice (I know NO code), to attempt setting up my own LAMP server. I bookmarked the link for future reference though. I would have tried the build your own in LibreOffice instructions had I seen this before, that would have worked for me i believe. Thanks again for the info.
