How to install WordPress with Softaculous and cPanel
No matter the hosting provider you are using there is always cPanel or something similar to it and auto-installer scripts like Softaculous, Fantastico, QuickInstall and Mojo Marketplace.
Though there are different methods in which you can access your cPanel depending on your hosting provider guide to access it. So all you need to do is to login to your cPanel and under it you can access your auto-installer (Softaculous) then click on WordPress.
After clicking on WordPress you will be navigated to the WordPress overview interface in which you can click on the install button to install your WordPress though the interface looks something similar to this:
Upon clicking the “Install” you will be automatically redirected to the dashboard in which you can have access to manipulate your WordPress site settings.
Under the Software Setup you can choose the WordPress Version you want to install. But i recommend choosing the updated version so that your website should always have access to updated features in WordPress.
The next thing you will see again is your domain settings where you can setup your domain directory. So all you need to do is to choose “https://” or “https://www.” if your site has SSL security enabled in the protocol under installation URL. After which you can choose your primary domain from the domain list and leave the directory empty so that WordPress can be installed in the default installation path.
Underneath it you will see site settings in which you can manipulate your “Site Name” and “Site Description”.
Scrolling down will take you to “Admin Account” section in which you can manipulate your Admin Username, Password and Email. Make sure that the Username, Password and Email you choose is not guessable by random person so as to secure your website, because you will use them to login to your website later. You can also choose English as your default language.
After that you can access your plugin section in which you can select the plugins type you wish to install in your website. Don’t worry you can still manipulate those changes later in the WordPress dashboard.
Whoop…. you are almost done. You just need to select the WordPress theme you want to install and then click on the “Install” button in the bottom .
The Installation will start running in the background after which the congratulation message popup and a link to your WordPress dashboard.
Note: Use the Username and Password set earlier on to login to your dashboard.
