In some of the previous posts of mine we have discussed about basic steps that are required for setting up your website. So now i hope you understand the basics and ready to go to the next level of website creation.
The main problem is that not everyone is good at coding skills but the good thing is that there are tons of readymade scripts available which can solve the purpose. You may either go for html templates or if you ask me then i would suggest go for wordpress.
The basic requirements for wordpress are:
- PHP 5.2.4 or greater
- MySQL 5.0 or greater
- The mod_rewrite Apache module
In this post let me show you how simple is installing wordpress on your website is.
Most of the hosting providers use cpanle and if you have a cpanel hosting then it is a kid’s job.
To go to the cpanel account just type http://yourwebsite address/cpanel
It will prompt you to enter your username and password. Once you log into the cpanel it will look like:
Now scroll down to the software/services section and there you can see an icon for Fantastico De Luxe
Fantastico is wonderful tool and its basically a web installer. It consists of plenty of scripts that you can see after clicking the icon. We need to select wordpress from blog section on left hand panel displayed.
Now click on new installation.
- In Install on domain field fill your domain name if it shows empty
- In Install in directory field you need to give directory name. If you want simple website then just leave it as it is.
- In Admin access data section give your administrator account username and password.
- In Base configuration just fill the details which is being asked.
That’s it. Click on “Install WordPress” button and it will do your job. Your website is ready now. Open your website and see how its looking. Please note that you should keep the wordpress access details safe. You may access the admin panel by visiting the link http://your website name/wp-admin/
I hope this post of mine was good enough to help the people who have cpanel hosting. In next post we will discuss how to install wordpress if you do not have cpanel host and you need to install it manually. Do not forget to share this page with other if you like it.
