Also a lot of hosts have a one-click install wordpress from their control panel
I used the one-click install on my own site, and used the self-install on a clients site. My site is always always updated to the latest version of Wordpress. With it being in the WP control panel that an update is available, they come straight through, no issues at all.
This may have changed now (so excuse me if it has) but one-click installs used to get a bad reputation for not keeping their platforms up-to-date and so exposing users to security vulnerabilities due to non-patching. In my opinion it is much better to know how a CMS is installed from scratch so that you are not left struggling with what to do when your WP site gets hacked. Learning to create a database and upload files through FTP are the basics that anyone attempting a database driven website should know. Otherwise, try the hosted version :icon_biggrin:
