WordPress Installation from installatron

WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability, and  it can be used to create simple blogs and complex web sites.  This tutorial provides directions and screenshots to help you through every step of the installation process!

Login to your cPanel and type “installatron” in the find box.  The installatron icon will appear to the right of the box.

 

Click on the Installatron icon.  On the next page, type “wordpress” in the search box and hit enter.

 

On the next page, click the “install this application” button.

 

On the next page, you will need to configure your WordPress installation using the install wizard.

The Location section allows you to choose where you install WordPress.  If you have multiple domains in your cPanel account, then you will need to select the desired domain from the Domain dropdown.

If you want people to be able to access your WordPress installation by simply visiting your domain name, then leave the Directory field blank.  However, if you want people to access your WordPress installation by visiting a URL like www.yourdomain.com/blog, then you should type blog in the Directory field.

 

The Version section allows you to choose which version of WordPress to install, accept the license agreement, and manage automatic updates.

You can select the version of WordPress you would like to install by using the Version dropdown.  We recommend always installing the latest version, as it will offer the most security and features.  If you want the admin area of your WordPress site to use a language other than English, select your desired language from the Language dropdown.

Next, you can review the license agreement for WordPress.  If you don’t want to accept the license agreement, then you will not be able to install WordPress.

Next, you can manage your Automatic Update settings.  We recommend automatically updating to new minor versions and security releases, as this will help keep your WordPress installation secure from hackers.  You can also choose to automatically update your plugins and theme, which will also help keep your website more secure.

 

The Settings section allows you to customise your WordPress installation.

You can enter the username, password, and email address for the admin area of your WordPress site.  Please do not use “admin” or “administrator” as the username for the admin area of your site, as this will make your installation vulnerable to hackers.  Also, please choose a strong password for the admin area of your site to help make your website as secure as possible.  Make a note of your username and password; you will use these details to login to the admin area of your site.  The admin email address for your site is where all messages regarding updates, password resets, etc. will be sent.

Next, enter the title and tagline for your website.  This information will appear on your website, web browsers, and in search engine results.  You can update this information at a later date via the admin area of WordPress.

If you want to use a single installation of WordPress to run multiple websites, then you can enable multi-site.  Also, you can limit the number of login attempts your website will allow before a user is banned.  We recommend limiting failed login attempts, as it will help make your website less vulnerable to hackers.

 

The Advanced section allows you to choose whether or not you want to manage databases, email notifications, default backup locations, and automatic backups yourself.  Unless you are familiar with managing these settings, we recommend choosing to allow Installatron to automatically manage these settings for you.

Once you’ve configured your settings, click the Install button to begin installing WordPress.

 

Once you’ve successfully installed WordPress, you will be able to login to the admin area of your site by clicking the admin URL.

 

On the next page, simply login using the username and password you created during the installation process, and you can begin building your website using WordPress.
