If you are creating a website on WordPress and you want to install it from cpanel, then this is a very simple process which will be told to you by this blog, in fact those who are new to the world of website designing or development, they can do this work a bit. Understand critical but it is not so, in this blog you will be told about some simple steps, so that you will be able to easily install WordPress from cpanel
How to Install WordPress from cPanel?
Friends, it is very easy to install WordPress from your cPanel. For this you just have to follow the points given below.
First of all login to your cPanel.
After this you go to the bottom where you will see a section named Softaculous Apps Installer.
From this section click on WordPress. You can refer to the image below for help.
As soon as you click on WordPress, you will be taken to the WordPress Installer page of Softaculous.
On this page you will see a button named Install Now. You have to click this button.
As soon as you click on the Install Now button, a WordPress installation form will open, which you will have to fill.
The first section in this form will be that of Software Setup.
In this, in the first field, you have to choose the latest version of WordPress. By Default This version is set to the latest, but if you want, you can change it and install any old version of WordPress.
Now friends, the second field in this section will be the Installation URL. In this you will find 3 sections. You must first select the protocol for your domain.
If you have installed SSL Certificate on your domain, then select https: otherwise you choose http:.
Friends, you can install SSL Certificate anytime, so if you have not installed SSL Certificate on your domain then do not worry. You can do this later also. and one more thing,
I recommend you to install Cloudflare’s free SSL Certificate on your domain because it has many benefits which I will tell you in Cloudflare’s SSL Installation post.
That’s why you can also subscribe to my website so that you can get information about my every new post.
Friends, now you will see two types of protocols in http: and https: also. One http: and one http://www. Similarly you will see two protocols for https: one https: and the other https://www.
Friends, if you choose only http: then your domain will look something like this – https://hostinghindi.in and if you go to http://www. Your domain will look something like this – https://www.hostinghindi.in
Similarly, if you choose the option with https, then instead of just http, https will come, everything else will remain the same.
Now friends, in this you have to choose the protocol according to you. I like domains without WWW so I have chosen the http: protocol. You can also check my website’s domain. In this you will not see www.
There is no difference on SEO from www and without www, then you can choose any protocol.
Friends, in this now you have to select your domain in the second section.
In this, you have to select the URL on which you want to install WordPress. Like I wanted to make this website, then I chose my domain ‘hostinghindi.in’.
Friends, if you do not see your domain in this field, then it means that you have not yet connected your domain to your cPanel.
You can click on the link given below to get information about how to connect your domain to cPanel.
Now friends, the third section you will see in this field is In Directory. Friends, if you see something written in this field, then remove it and leave this field empty.
If you do not leave this field blank, a separate directory will be created in your domain. For example, if you write WP in this field, then the domain of your website will look something like this –
https://hostinghindi.in/wp/ which will also not be good in terms of SEO. So keep in mind that we have to leave this field empty.
Now friends, the next section you will see will be Site Settings.
In this section you will see three fields. The first field will ask for the name of the website, the second will be the description or tagline of your website and the third will be a checkbox field which will ask you to enable the Multisite feature.
Friends, you have to enter the name of your website in the first field, description in the second and leave the third field unchecked. You can also refer to the image below for help.
Now the third section of our form will be that of admin account.
Friends, in this section you have to set an admin username and password for your website. Also you have to enter an admin email.
This admin email will also be used for your password recovery, so you just enter a current email address in it.
Friends, here I want to tell you one important thing that you should enter your username and password as hard as you can. And don’t forget to keep your username as admin.
Hackers attack the most brute force on the name of admin, so you should put some other username instead of admin. Also, write down your admin username and password in a safe place.
Two important posts that you should read:
Friends, now let’s talk about our fourth section.
In this section, you just have to choose the language for your website, then you choose English in it. If you want to make a website in Hindi also, then let it remain English only.
Our fifth section is Select Plugins.
Friends, in this you will be told three plugins that you can install with WordPress. However, I advise you not to install any of the three plugins. In my upcoming posts and Youtube videos, I will tell you which plugins you have to use and which are not.
So you must subscribe to my blog and YouTube channel so that you can reach the information of my every post and video.
Now our sixth section is that of Advanced Options.
You will see 6 fields in the section with friends advanced options. In the first field you can change the name of your database. Friends, I would advise you to keep the name of your database that you remember and write it in a copy.
The second field is of table prefix. Whatever name you enter in it, the names of the rows and columns of the tables of your database will start with that name. If you do not understand this, then you can leave it like this also.
Leave the third field Disable Update Notifications Emails unchecked.
The fourth field is Auto Upgrade. Friends, this field will ask you whether you want to update your WordPress website automatically whenever a new version is released or you would like to update by yourself.
Friends, it depends on you how you want to update. I like to keep my website on automatic update, so I choose the third option from this.
The fifth and sixth fields ask you to install WordPress Plugin and WordPress Themes on auto update. In this, you should put WordPress Plugins on auto update but do not install WordPress Themes and leave its checkbox unchecked.
Now comes our seventh and last section of themes.
Friends, you can select any of the themes given below for your website. If you do not select any of these themes, then the latest theme of WordPress will be automatically installed in your website.
I do not choose any of the themes given below. However you can if you want.
Friends, below the themes, you will see a field where you will have to enter your email address. You will be sent the details of your WordPress installation on this email, so please enter your email.
After entering the email, you just have to press the Install button and WordPress will be installed on your web hosting.
As soon as WordPress is installed, you will see a successful installation page and you will also get an email related to your installation on your given email.
Now friends you can login to your website and start working on your website.
After installing WordPress, your website will look like this:
To login to your website, you just have to write /wp-login.php next to your domain, after which you will reach the login page of your website. For example, you can see the below URL.
