Install WordPress on your web server

To install WordPress on your web server, you can use the software offered by your web host (If it’s available), or you can download a copy from the official platform. We will explore both possibilities.

1- Install WordPress using the software available in your server (example – Softaculous)

Softaculous

Softaculous is an application available on several web servers that can allow you to install content managers or frameworks in a few minutes. The principle is to select the application you want to install, follow the steps and get your tool for creating your website. We are going to see how you can use Softaculous to make your website with WordPress.

Here are the steps to follow:

First, locate the software in your server and click to go to the administrator panel. In the Softaculous software panel, you will see several website design applications, including WordPress. You have to click on the WordPress photo. It should be noted that to create your website with WordPress, you must provide a username, password and email address. Then follow the following steps:

  • Click Install.
  • On the first page, give information such as the version you want to install, the Protocol, the domain name and the subfolder.
  • Then enter your website name and description.
  • Subsequently, you will choose a username, password and also enter your email address.
  • The application allows you to choose a theme from the bank of free WordPress themes.
  • Finally, if you need some basic functionality, you can install the software’s extensions.
