How do I install WordPress?




To install WordPress on your hosting account, please follow the steps below:

1.  Log in to your hosting cPanel using the details provided in your Welcome e-mail
2.  Once you're logged in, scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find the Softaculous Apps Installer section (Regular or Premium Plans)
3.  Click the WordPress icon
4.  Click Install
5.  Complete the fields required for the installation. 

IMPORTANT - If you want to install WordPress into the root of your domain, please remove the text from the In Directory field (usually wp)

6.  Select a theme (if required) from the list available.  You can change the theme at any time.
7.  Click Install to complete the installation

If you have a Starter Hosting Plan, you will not have the Softaculous Apps Installer, so have 2 choices: either upgrade for just £5 per annum more and get it in your plan or you will need to manually upload the WordPress files and follow their installation procedures.
