How do I install and set-up WordPress?

Back to Help Main Page

Although you can download and install WordPress manually, we have made it very easy to do from your Web Control Panel using a 1-Click installation method.

To install WordPress, simply follow these steps:
  • Login to your Web Hosting Plus Control Panel

  • Look for the WordPress icon (W) in the CGI Scripts Box and click

  • On the next page you will be asked the installation directory you would like WordPress installed into (i.e. http://yourdomain.com/wordpress/), so enter the directory name of your choice

  • Click the 'Install Now' button. And that's it! A few seconds later WordPress will have been installed with a confirmation screen.
Once installed you can then fill out the short form on the WordPress set-up page. The 'Help' link at the top of the WordPress Admin pages will provide further details and help if you need it.

The WordPress website can be found at http://wordpress.org
