WordPress is a very simple process and takes less than five minutes to complete. Many web hosts now offer tools (e.g. Fantastico) to automatically install WordPress for you. However, if you wish to install WordPress yourself, the following guide will help

 

  1. Download and unzip the WordPress package (if you haven’t already) from here
  2. Login to your hosting cPanel
  3. Go to Database and click MYSQL Databases
  4. Create a database for WordPress on your web server

5. Create user for the MYSQL database just created (new_database)

  1. Add new user (user) to new database (new_database)
  2. Upload the WordPress files to the desired location on your web server:
    • If you want to integrate WordPress into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/), move or upload all contents of the unzipped WordPress directory (excluding the WordPress directory itself) into the root directory (public_html/) of your web server.
    • If you want to have your WordPress installation in its own subdirectory on your website (e.g. http://example.com/blog/), create the blog directory (public_html/blog) on your server and upload the contents of the unzipped WordPress package to the director
  3.  Run the WordPress installation script by accessing the URL in a web browser. This should be the URL where you uploaded the WordPress files.
    • If you installed WordPress in the root directory, you should visit: http://example.com/
    • If you installed WordPress in its own subdirectory called blog, for example, you should visit: http://example.com/blog/
