Are you finding it difficult to install WordPress in your cPanel?
In this tutorial I will walk you through how to install and uninstall WordPress in your cPanel using the Softaculous App Installer.
Login to your cPanel. This takes you to the cPanel Dashboard Interface. Scroll down to the SOFTACULOUS APPS INSTALLER section. Click on WordPress.
Click on Install below the WordPress. In the “Software Setup section”, choose your Installation URL i.e. the domain name you want to install your WordPress on. After that, move to the “Admin Account section” on your right and Create your Admin Username, Password and Email. It is highly recommend you change the default admin username and choose a secure password to protect your WordPress website from hackers.
Enter your Site Name and Site Description under the “Site Settings Section” on your left. Details you provide can be updated later in your WordPress dashboard after installation.
Scroll down to the Bottom and click on the Install. Wait for the Installation to complete
After the Installation, you will receive your Administrative URL. i.e. the URL you will be using to login into your WordPress dashboard.
Click on the Administrative URL, under the Congratulations Message. This logs you in straight to your WordPress dashboard without requesting for password.
To access your WordPress dashboard later, simply add /wp-admin to your domain name, in my case that will be “shostdemo.com/wp-admin”. This will take you to the login screen where you enter your username and password.
You can check your new website by entering the domain name used for the WordPress installation in your browser. Your WordPress site should be live now.
