WordPress has been around in the past decade and is best known for its practical and highly functional features. Initially only popular among bloggers, today, it has turned into one of the most wanted Content Management Software (CMS) for non-blogging websites because it is user-friendly and easily manageable. Adding new content or even rich multimedia content to your website is a breeze. Here are a few simple steps to get you started by first installing WordPress in your cPanel through Softaculous.
After logging into your cPanel account, you will see a list of available options. Under ‘Software/Services’, select Softaculous to go to various Installation preferences.
When you see the Softaculous site, you’ll usually see the WordPress icon displayed under ‘Top Scripts’. If you cannot find the WordPress icon here, search for it at the Left Panel under ‘Blogs’.
Selecting the WordPress Icon in Step 2 will direct you to the Installation page, which displays the details of the current WordPress version and the latest change log. You can explore by going through ‘Features’ or ‘Demos’ on the top navigation bar which display more in-depth information and hands-on experience regarding the app. To go straight to the installation, simply click the Install button to begin the Installation process.
Next, a series of empty fields will appear. Fill out all the necessary information. Initially, you can leave “Choose Protocol”, “In Directory”, “Database Name” and “Database Settings” as Defaults, unless it involves Technical Modifications. The “Choose Domain” section allows you to choose the specific domain for this WordPress App. For starters, you’ll be only to choose one domain in the list. Extras: You can also create Sub-domains such as email@example.com, and WordPress can have it pointed to the sub-domain when you select it.
Click the link to go to the WordPress admin page, or simply browse to yourdomain.com/wp-login.php or yourdomain.com/wp-admin . Login with the username and password you chose before:
You’ll then be brought to the ‘Dashboard’ of WordPress, where you can manage your content or add-in additional plug-ins for better user experience.
