HOW TO INSTALL WORDPRESS

One of the best features of WordPress is how easily it can be installed. It takes less than 5 minutes to setup a WordPress site from scratch using either the built in WordPress installer or popular 1-click installers provided by hosting companies like iRworld. In the video below I will walk you through all the steps you need to take to install a WordPress site from scratch.

Two Method For installation for wordpress:
1. Install WordPress via Softaculous
2. Manual installation of WordPress

METHOD 1. INSTALL WORDPRESS VIA SOFTACULOS:

Use Softaculous to install a WordPress application to your site. It will take only few minutes and literally no advanced skills to have a fully functional WordPress instance in your hosting account.

Step 1 : Login to your cPanel account 

Step 2 : Find the Softaculous icon under the "Software Services" section. t should be located in the lower part of your cPanel page, right under the "Domains" section.

Step 3 : lick on the Softaculous button. you will be redirected to the page where you have to chose the application you want to install.

Step 4 : click on press the Install button

Step 5: Finally, enter the required fields for your site - title, description, administrative username and password, administrative e-mail etc. and click on the "Install" button. 
Please note that by default Softaculous will install the application in a "wp" sub-folder. That being said, if you would like to be able to access the website only via your domain name you should delete the wp string from the "Directory" field. If you want to install the application in another sub-folder you should simply type it in the field.

Well Done! Your WordPress application is installed and ready to use. You can now login and start blogging!

METHOD 2. MANUAL INSTALLATION OF WORDPRESS:

Note: If you want this WordPress installation to be main for your website, the files should reside in the public_html folder of your account. However, you can always make a subfolder (i.e. public_html/blog) if you want to run only part of your website on WordPress.
Step 3: Create a MySQL Database for WordPress to use:
