To install WordPress, you can follow these steps:
- Choose a web hosting provider: You need a web hosting provider to host your WordPress site. There are many hosting providers to choose from, such as Bluehost, SiteGround, and HostGator.
- Register a domain name: Your domain name is the address people will use to access your WordPress site. You can register a domain name with your hosting provider or with a separate domain registrar.
- Download WordPress: You can download the latest version of WordPress from the official WordPress website. The downloaded file will be in a zip format.
- Upload WordPress files to your web host: You can upload the WordPress files to your web host using an FTP client, or through the cPanel of your web host. If you are using cPanel, you can go to “File Manager” and upload the WordPress zip file to the public_html folder. Then extract the zip file in the same folder.
- Create a MySQL database: WordPress uses a MySQL database to store your website data. You need to create a MySQL database and a user with all privileges to that database. You can create a MySQL database through the cPanel of your web host.
- Install WordPress: After uploading the WordPress files and creating the database, you can install WordPress by visiting the URL of your website. You will be asked to select the language for your site, and then you will see a screen to enter the database details. After entering the database details, you will be asked to enter the site title, username, and password. Once you have entered all the information, click on “Install WordPress”.
- Login to your WordPress dashboard: After installation, you can log in to your WordPress dashboard by visiting the URL “yourdomain.com/wp-admin”. You can use the username and password you created during installation.
Congratulations, you have now installed WordPress on your website and can start building your site.
