If you already have a Hosting plan and want to install WordPress to be able to create your blog or web page, you can do it in two simple ways, one more than the other, but depending on the characteristics of your hosting.
If your hosting service has cPanel, the process is much more simple and that’s what we’ll explain first.
Installing WordPress in cPanel
To begin, we will access the cPanel of our web site, generally, the address is cpanel.misitio.com or misitio.com/cpanel, but depending on your hosting provider, the address can change, this date and credentials will be sent to you by email
Once the session is started in the control panel, we will look for the Software section and click on it Installatron Applications Installer.
An application administrator will appear. Let’s click on Application navigator, in the upper right menu.
In el apartado Content Management Systems, we will be able to find all CMS available to install. In the first place, WordPress will appear, click on it.
If a page will open with the complete information of the CMS, a button appears on the right side that says Install this application, click on it to continue.
If the configuration page for the installation will be displayed, it is necessary to pay attention to what is done to avoid errors.
First, we will be asked for the location of the installation:
In the part that says Domain, we choose if we want to use the main domain or if we prefer to use a subdomain, for this last, It is necessary to create ante from the subdomain from cPanel.
In Ruta, we write the folder where it will be installed, if it is left blank, WordPress will be installed at the root, this means that when accessing the domain of the website, the WordPress page will be displayed. If we write something in the route, as in the example, it will be necessary to access the site with the address masterhacks.net/tutorialprueba.
After selecting the CMS version, for security it is recommended to install the last version. Después, from an idiom.
The following section shows the license and automatic update options and backup creation.
There are options if you can leave the way they are shown by default or change them according to the needs of each user.
After that, we configure the login data. If you can use the suggested password or a new one.
After that, we’ll click on it Install.
We will see a loading bar while the application is being installed. Once installed it will show as a new application.
At the end of the installation, you can observe the URL for the administration, or you can simply enter it in the browser /wp-login.php.
When accessing this URL, we will ask for the credentials we created when configuring the installation.
Then it will be possible to proceed with the personalization of the website from the WordPress desktop.
Note: The application browser can be different from Installatron, but the process is similar.
If your hosting provider does not have cPanel or the option to install applications, there is a more complicated option, in which you have to download the software, upload it to the server and follow a configuration assistant.
First, we download the CMS from the official WordPress page. We will decompress it and upload the files with the cPanel file manager or with the FileZilla software.
If you have never used FileZilla, to connect you use the data provided by the hosting provider, which is an FTP address, which we will place in the Server field, the user name and password and in some cases the Port.
Once inside the server, we headed to the route public_html, which is where all the archives of the web site will be found. If you want to install in a directory, you must create it yourself and place the WordPress files there.
After uploading all the files to the server, we will access the complete URL with the path where the files were created, for example: misitio.com/blog.
A start page will appear, where we are asked to create a database and obtain the data for access.
For this, you must use the database tool provided by the hosting or use the Databases option from cPanel.
To create the database and user, it is necessary to grant all the privileges to the user on the database created.
By clicking on Let’s go to it, we will place the requested data. If there is no error, a message will appear as follows:
Afterwards we will be asked for the title of the site, user name to administer and password. For security, they must be different from those chosen by the database user.
Let’s click on install and a few seconds after it shows a confirmation message.
By clicking on access, we will be able to enter to customize from the new web site.
