Installing WordPress on my Web Hosting

This step-by-step tutorial will guide you through the correct way to install WordPress using the instant One-Click App Install within your Hosting Manager.

Here are the steps:

Installing WordPress

To start installing WordPress, do the following:

  1. In your Hosting Manager, click the Apps icon, then click the Installatron Applications installer button.
  2. Scroll down to Content Management, then select the WordPress icon.
  3. Click +Install this application.

The wizard will guide you through the installation of WordPress. Below are our explanations and recommendations for choosing how you will install WordPress. Our recommended settings are chosen by default, but if you want to you can change them.

Location

The location means two things. The first is that the URL will be different, and the second means that the directory will be different.

Example:

  • http://www.yourdomain.com – main root directory
  • http://www.yourdomain.com/blog – sub folder directory

If you install WordPress in a sub folder, please enter your desired directory in the Directory (Optional) field in your WordPress installation wizard. This will create a separate URL and a folder in your hosting file manager that will contain your WordPress site.

Version

To select your Wordpress Version do the following:

  1. Leave the Version as Recommended.
  2. Select the language.
  3. Accept the EULA.
  4. For Automatic Update we recommend selecting Upgrade to new minor versions and security releases. This will help keep your site safe.
  5. For plugins and themes, we recommend manual upgrades because theme and plugin updates can disrupt the functioning of your site.
  6. We recommend creating automatic backups to save your site if something goes wrong with an update.

Settings

To configure WordPress do the following:

  1. Set your Administrator username and password. Please remember to make these secure.
