How to Install WordPress

 

Have you any clue on how to install WordPress?

This step-by-step guide will teach you how to manually install WordPress using cPanel.

So for beginners what is cPanel?

CPanel: is the most widely used administration system for web hosts. It provides a very easy-to-use graphical interface and makes everything from creating new databases to uploading files extremely easy. You can learn more about Control Panels at our blog: https://www.host4porn.com/2015/11/23/control-panels/

Note: This tutorial assumes that you have already signed up for an account at a website hosting with Host4porn that uses cPanel.

1. Creating a Database: First we will set up our database and database user.

      Login to your cPanel account, find the Databases panel, and click MySQL Databases.

Database

 At the top, enter a name for your database and click Create Database. Most of the time, you will want to name your database with your website name, using lowercase letters.

create datavae

With shared hosting accounts, there will be a prefix before the actual database name you create. You will need to know this for later.

After the database is created, you will be taken to a confirmation page. Click the Go Back button to return to the main databases page.


2. Creating a MySQL User:  Scroll down to the MySQL Users section. Again you will see the same prefix as your database name.

Enter a username and password for your database user and click Create User. After the user is created, you will be taken to a confirmation page. Click the Go Back button to return to the main databases page.

Adding a User to Your Database: Now that you have created your database and user, you have to give the user permission to use the database.

Under the Add User to Database section, choose your user from the User dropdown and your database from the Database dropdown and click add.

At the next screen, check the All Privileges checkbox to select everything and click Make Changes. And our database will be now ready for WordPress to be installed.

  1. Downloading WordPress: Visit the official WordPress download page here to download and save the latest version of WordPress as a .ZIP file.

download wordr

If you are installing WordPress to the main domain name on your hosting account, use the instructions directly below. If you are installing WordPress to a subdomain or add on domain, use the second set of instructions below.

ZIP File Setup for Main Domain: Unzip the file you just downloaded. You will now have a folder named “word press”, with the WordPress files/folders inside.

Open the main “word press” folder, select everything inside, and create a new .ZIP file so that the files/folders are no longer inside the main “Word Press” folder. If you are unable to create a new .ZIP file, you can use the original one you downloaded, but you will have to move the files once you unzip them onto the server.

ZIP File Setup for Subdomain or Addon Domain: Open the Word press .ZIP file. Rename the main “word press” folder to the name of your website, in all lowercase letters, and with no spaces (hyphens are OK if you really want to use them).

You don’t need to unzip the entire file to do this. Most archiving software will allow simply opening the .ZIP file, right clicking the “word press” folder, and renaming it to whatever you want.

Uploading and Extracting Your Files: Go back to the main page in your cPanel account, and click File Manager under the Files panel to open the cPanel File Manager in a new window.

File manege

Navigate to the “public_html” folder in the left sidebar.   public html

Click the Upload button in the top toolbar to open the file uploader in a new window.

Browse to your .ZIP file and click Open. You will see an upload status bar in the bottom right corner. Once your file has finished uploading, close the file uploader window. Click the Reload button to refresh the file list in the File Manager.

zip file

Find the .ZIP file you just uploaded, click to select it, and click the Extract button in the top toolbar.  extract

Extract the contents of the .ZIP file into /public_html. If you are installing Word press to your main domain, then the files/folders wp-admin, wp-content, wp-includes, etc. should all be located directly in /public_html.

If you are installing WordPress to a subdomain or addon domain, the files/folders should be under /public_html/websitename, with the subdomain or addon domain pointing to that folder.

Enter the Database Name of the database we created earlier. Make sure you include your database prefix, for example, we created the database “testdatabase”, but it had a prefix of “designp_” so we enter “designp_testdatabase”.

Do the same for the User Name, again, including the prefix.

Enter the password for your User.

Unless you know what you are doing, leave the Database Host and Table Prefix at their default settings.

Click Submit.
