I figured that LJ would be great software to play around with (FWIW beginning the website for a fledging non-profit group in the middle of nowhere, New Hampshire). As it were, I actually don't know as much as I thought I could pretend to, in relation to installing, say, SMF, Wordpress, or MediaWiki. I simply don't have command line access to my server, or if I do it's hiding well. Is there any help offered to people who don't know where to begin? I have the tar.gz and the webspace.
