On Aug 5, 2005, Rudra suggested that the D2HS team participate on a hiking trip to Phulchoki. Among the D2HS team members, Rudra, John, Vishnu, Shreeniwas and his wife Muna were able to take part on the trip on Aug 7, 2005, Sunday.

At 7.30 AM, we started from Godavari, the bottom of Phulchoki and climbed to the summit, reaching the top at 11.15 AM (3 hours 45 minutes). We rested there for about 25 minutes and then we began to climb down. Starting the downhill trek at 11.40 AM, we reached the bottom at 3.15 PM (3 hours 35 minutes). Climbing up and climbing down made a nice trek of 28 kilometers (17.5 miles). It was raining most of the way and most of the participants were using umbrellas and some were inside rain coats. But all the participants were so excited, they were pushing themselves to achieve the pleasure and victory over the challenge set forth by nature.

The blossom of wild flowers, the breath taking views from the height, the chill and fresh air of pure mountain and the united spirit of participants made a memorable Hike to Phulchoki.

    hi greenyogi,
    if you are trying to install a wordpress in your domain, here are the steps:
    - unzip and upload the content to the webserver.
    - create a database and note the db username and password.
    - run install feature of wordpress. [http:///wp-admin/setup-config.php]
    - that would be all.
    If you need in-depth customization, you need to change the wordpress code itself, and of course you can have a lots of new themes which can be downloaded from wordpress’ themes section.

    Dhilung kirat ji,

    Yup! I got the point that EU is self hosted site. And also knows that u have just downloaded the package from wordpress.org
    My question here is, how u manage to put the downloaded package inside webserver.
    I tried uploading the same but resulted in vain.
    It Shows php error though my webhosting have php installed.

    So, i’m konfused.
    Am i clear kirat ji?

    Dear thegreenyogi,

    It is not clear what you exactly meant by ‘supressing wordpress’. I am assuming that you are asking about removing wordpress references at wordpress.com hosted blogsite.

    For your information, http://www.everestuncensored.org runs on a self-hosted WordPress installation (not like one of those wordpress.com hosted blog). It uses its own ‘theme’ which is completely customizable. WordPress.com hosted blog only allow you to apply preinstalled themes and modify CSS (need to purchase this functionality). So suppressing wordpress is not possible at such sites.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks.
