How to Install WordPress

Tuesday, October 19, 2010 @ 11:45 pm by ProBlogit.com

I already wrote a detailed explanation at Sehdi.com on how to install WordPress. I again used DreamHost in this example as I especially used the “One-Click Installs” feature of DreamHost. This is a follow up blog entry to the blog entry on how to set up a Website.

How to Install WordPress via DreamHost Control Panel

Proceed to DreamHost, then click the first link “Web Panel” at the bottom of the page to log in at the DreamHost Control Panel.

1. Supply the email address and password that you used when you signed up for a web hosting account with DreamHost at the “DreamHost: Login” page to log in at the web control panel and then click the button “Login”.

2. Click the link “One-Click Installs” on the left side under “Toolbox” above the “Main Menu” or click the link “Free Website Software” on the right side under “Let’s Get Started”.

3. Click the link “Install new website software – Easy mode” or “Install new website software – Advanced mode”.

4. Click WordPress.

5. Select the domain name at the dropdown menu corresponding to the text “Install to”.

6. Click “Install it for me now!”.

7. Check the link where you installed WordPress at the browser.

8. Fill out the necessary details at the blank fields provided.

9. Click the button “Install WordPress”.

The username and password will be sent to the email address that you provided.

That’s it!

If you would like to check the WordPress installation, just click the button “Login”.

Supply the username and password, then click the button “Login”.

If you were redirected to the “Dashboard” of your WordPress installation, then your WordPress installation was successful.

Disclosure: Other than liking the features of DreamHost as a web host, I am also an affiliate of DreamHost. So, if you decide to sign up for a web hosting account with DreamHost using my referral link, I am going to earn from it.
