You can install WordPress through your web hosting control panel. Check your control panel for an installation script icon (Installatron, Softaculous, etc). All you need to do is run it and enter your username, password and additional informations. The script will take care of everything. Different hosting companies use different solutions so we recommend to get in touch with your hosting company if you don’t find the installer.
- Download the latest version of WordPress from wordpress.org/download/
- Create a database for WordPress on your web server, as well as a MySQL user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.
- 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 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 on your server and upload the contents of the unzipped WordPress package to the directory via FTP.
- Note: If your FTP client has an option to convert file names to lower case, make sure it’s disabled.
- Run the WordPress installation by visiting your site’s URL in your 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/
