WordPress first saw the light of day on May 27, 2003. The founders are Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little.WordPress can be referred to as an online, open-source site-building tool based on PHP and MySQL programming languages. In more advanced terms it is called a content management system (CMS).
When WordPress was first launched, it had several users but grew into the biggest and most popular CMS globally. Today, WordPress is powering over 75 million websites. Research carried out in 2020 shows that this content management system is used by more than 26% of the 10 million best-ranking sites.
One reason for WordPress popularity is the low system requirements needed to run this CMS on a web server:
PHP version 5.2.4 or greater.
MySQL version 5.0.15 or greater or any version of MariaDB.
You would probably have to search for a hosting provider which lacks WordPress support. Many hosts use various auto-installers to make the WordPress installation process as simple as possible.
By using auto-installers, users no longer have to deal with database creation or file uploading.
