WordPress installation automatic and manual step by step
In this tutorial we are going to show you two methods of installing the WordPress platform. WordPress is one of the most highly used website building platforms around, and is used by millions of people across the globe. You can build pretty much any type of website using the WordPress platform, which adds to its popularity. There are hundreds of thousands of different types of plugins that you can get for WordPress, usually written by third-party companies or people. These plugins allow website builders to perform a fantastic amount of different tasks without the need for writing a single line of code.
The manual install is fairly easy. You can download the WordPress files from wordpress.org and then upload them directly to your hosting provider. If you decide to do it this way you will need to create a database and a user so that you can install WordPress and get it running correctly. We take you through the whole process of doing this, from the initial download at wordpress.org, to unzipping the files and uploading them to your host provider, either with cpanel or an FTP client such as filezilla. As mentioned before, this process is very easy, but you do have to take extra steps and create a database with a good password and a new user to use that database. No problem we show you how to do this via you cpanel phpMyAdmin system.
The other method that we show you is installing WordPress from within the cpanel itself. Most hosting providers use a cpanel, or something very similar, and the vast majority of them provide an automatic way of installing WordPress. Using this method, you usually just select the domain or subdomain that you wish to install to, simply click a button and it takes you through the whole process. It even automatically sets up a new database and user for you, so that at the end of the process you can just log in and start building your new website.
So follow along and see how easy it is to install WordPress and start building your website today.
