Trying to figure out how to install WordPress? There are a few different methods you can use, each of which I’ll give an in-depth guide for.
Before you install WordPress
Before you begin installing WordPress, you’ll need a good web hosting provider and a domain name of your blog.
- A domain name idea (this will be the name of your blog i.e xyz.com)
- A web hosting account (this is where your website live on the internet)
Methods For Setup WordPress Blog
First of all, why are there different methods for installing WordPress in the first place? The answer is simple… Because of WordPress’ popularity, there are a number of helper tools that make it easier to install the platform on different servers and hosts. As a result, there’s not simply one choice for how to install WordPress but multiple alternative ones.
To do this, you’ll also need four things…
First of all, you’ll need FTP access to your web server, which should have been furnished to you by your web hosting provider.
Second, you’ll need an FTP client. This is a desktop application that enables you to copy and transfer files from your own computer to your web server. FileZilla and Cyberduck are a couple of free FTP clients for both PC and Mac.
Third, you’ll need a text editor, like Notepad or TextEdit.
And last, your web browser of choice. Chrome and Safari are best because they support the latest HTML5 and CSS3 web standards. IE does not.
How to install WordPress manually via FTP
Now you have all above access so just setup like this
Start by downloading the latest version of WordPress from wordpress.org:
Now login to your FTP client account, I personally use FileZilla, you can use any free tools by your choice. Then downloaded unzip file upload to Public_html folder to your host server
While this uploading process, you may have to create My SQL database for your blog. Uploading process may take a few minutes to upload WordPress on your blog. For a database, you have to log in your Cpanel and find MySQL Database tab and create database and user for the same.
After the click, now you see create a new database and database name
You can name anything whatever you want to name that database. Just make sure you remember that name because you will need later this name so.
After create successfully database you need to create one new user for that database and give it all permission for the same
On other page database asking for permission for the same and as I said you give all rights to users so later that user can do anything with that database
After that created database, you need to go back to your FTP client and see the process of uploading if all data transferred then you have to visit your blog through any browser you use. And you will see the blog running and display WordPress install wizard screen. WordPress will ask your Language. Choose your language and go further
After that you have to connect your MySQL database to blog, so need that created database credential here to run a blog.
If all goes well then one last time you have to run the WordPress process to connect your database and run the blog.
After running the wizard your blog should be live and you have to fill basic information about your blogs like Name, email, and password for blog login.
Then click Install WordPress.
And that’s it! You just learned how to install WordPress manually. You can now log in with the account details that you entered during the install process:
