Install WordPress on Your Linux-Hosted Domain Using cPanel

If you want to use WordPress to build your website or use it for something like a blog, you have to first install it on your hosting account.

  1. From the cPanel home page, in the Web Applications section, click WordPress blog.
  2. Click Install this application.
  3. Complete the following fields, and then click Install:
    Field What to do...
    Location - Domain Select the domain name you want to use.

    If you want to use a subdomain (e.g. subdomain.coolexample.com), you should add the subdomain to your account.

    Location - Directory (Optional) Enter the directory where you want to install WordPress.

    If you want to use WordPress as the website for the domain you selected in the Domain field, make sure the Directory field is empty. If you enter a word in the field, that is where WordPress will be installed, and the web address (URL) for the Website you create will include the directory name. For example, if you type blog in the Directory field, the web address for your WordPress website will be coolexample.com/blog.

    Version Select the version of WordPress you want to use. We recommend using all of these default settings.
    Settings There are number of options here that are automatically generated for you. It's important to note them because they include the username and password you will have to use to log in to your WordPress Website.

    It is important to either note or change the Administrator Username and Administrator Password.

    Also ensure that you select the Two-Factor Authentication option you want to use.
    Advanced Select how you want to manage advanced options like database management and backups.
