How to install WordPress

This guide assumes you’ve already logged in to your website’s cPanel

1. Scroll to the Softaculous Apps Installer section

and click on the WordPress icon

2. Click the Install button

on the top right

3. Enter the required info

most of the pre-filled details can be left as is, unless you want to change the defaults. Be sure to enter your email address (1,2) before clicking the Install button (3)
Leave “In Directory” blank unless you want to install in a subdirectory (for example, if you wanted to install in yourdomain.co.za/blog then enter blog in this field). The subdirectory must not exist, because Softaculous will create it during the install process.

You’re done!

and you can now log into your WordPress Dashboard by following the link on the confirmation page.
