WordPress is a highly advanced web site system that can be personalized to fit the look and feel that you want with any of the many templates available.
Step One: Create a Database and User
Note: password must be at least 5 characters and may not be the same as your username.
Step Two: Install Word Press
Note: If there is an error or the installation wizard does not appear please ensure you have PHP enabled on your website and that your DB details are correct.
Extracting / Unzipping Files:
Navigate to the archive you have just downloaded and open it.
Note: The default location should be fine as it should be saving back to the same directory that they are already in.
Check PHP is Enabled:
Uploading Files By FTP:
From your FTP client connect to the domain/directory that WordPress will be installed under.
Note: For more on FTP see our knowledgebase article on FTP. WordPress can be installed to any directory or sub-directory. If the directory that you would like to install in does not exist you simply need to create it. If you want people to see your WordPress site at www.yourdomain.com then upload the files to “wwwroot”, but if you want to build and test your site first maybe you create a sub-directory for the files such as “dev” or “development”. With WordPress installed to “dev” sub-directory the URL to your WordPress site would become www.yourdomain.com/dev.
