Allow firewall in case it is running on your system.
[root@desk mythcat]# firewall-cmd --add-port=80/tcp --permanent
[root@desk mythcat]# firewall-cmd --reload
If SELinux is running, run the commands to allow database and sendmail:
[root@desk mythcat]# setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect_db=1
[root@desk mythcat]# setsebool -P httpd_can_sendmail=1
Enable systemctl services for WordPress:
[root@desk mythcat]# systemctl start httpd
[root@desk mythcat]# systemctl enable httpd
[root@desk mythcat]# systemctl enable mariadb
[root@desk mythcat]# systemctl start mariadb
Set up the MySQL service for WordPress:
[root@desk mythcat]# mysql_secure_installation


In order to log into MariaDB to secure it, we'll need the current
password for the root user. If you've just installed MariaDB, and
haven't set the root password yet, you should just press enter here.

Enter current password for root (enter for none): 
OK, successfully used password, moving on...

Setting the root password or using the unix_socket ensures that nobody
can log into the MariaDB root user without the proper authorisation.

You already have your root account protected, so you can safely answer 'n'.

Switch to unix_socket authentication [Y/n] n
 ... skipping.

You already have your root account protected, so you can safely answer 'n'.

Change the root password? [Y/n] n
 ... skipping.

By default, a MariaDB installation has an anonymous user, allowing anyone
to log into MariaDB without having to have a user account created for
them.  This is intended only for testing, and to make the installation
go a bit smoother.  You should remove them before moving into a
production environment.

Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] Y
 ... Success!

Normally, root should only be allowed to connect from 'localhost'.  This
ensures that someone cannot guess at the root password from the network.

Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n] Y
 ... Success!

By default, MariaDB comes with a database named 'test' that anyone can
access.  This is also intended only for testing, and should be removed
before moving into a production environment.

Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] Y
 - Dropping test database...
 ... Success!
 - Removing privileges on test database...
 ... Success!

Reloading the privilege tables will ensure that all changes made so far
will take effect immediately.

Reload privilege tables now? [Y/n] Y
 ... Success!

Cleaning up...

All done!  If you've completed all of the above steps, your MariaDB
installation should now be secure.

Thanks for using MariaDB!
Create a database named mysite for WordPress:
[root@desk mythcat]# mysqladmin create mysite -u root -p 
Enter password: 
[root@desk mythcat]# mysql -u root -p 
Enter password:

Set WordPress default configuration file named wp-config.php:
[root@desk mythcat]# vim /etc/wordpress/wp-config.php
This source code show you to set wp-config.php for localhost install:
define( 'DB_NAME', 'mysite' );

/** MySQL database username */
define( 'DB_USER', 'testadmin' );

/** MySQL database password */
define( 'DB_PASSWORD', 'TESTtest!' );

/** MySQL hostname */
define( 'DB_HOST', 'localhost' );
Restart the httpd service:
[root@desk mythcat]# systemctl restart httpd
