Video Transcript: In this video, learn how to install WordPress automatically via your cPanel with Fantastico Deluxe which is offered free by most cPanel hosting companies.
And this is the main Fantastico Deluxe screen, and if you scroll down, you’ll be able to see that besides the WordPress application that we want to install, you will also find a lot of other useful open-source free PHP scripts that you can install to your server; for example, OS Commerce; ZenCart; and even several Wiki scripts; and also some forum scripts. So you’re going to install WordPress just click on WordPress .
Next, click on New Installation. Okay, so this is the main setup or configuration screen for your new WordPress blog. And there’s just a few fields here that you need to fill up, but the most important is this field here that asks you which directory you want to install WordPress on. So for most cases, if your website is dedicated to just that WordPress blog, then you’d want to install the WordPress software in the root directory, whereby you leave this column entirely empty, but if you want to install WordPress to a particular folder on your website, for example, if you wanna install it to a folder called “Blog,” then you can just enter the directory named “Blog” right here. I’m going to install this to the root folder of my website, so I’m gonna leave that blank, and the next thing you need to fill up is the Admin access data and also the password.
And you may want to enter your site name, and a description of your site. Okay? So when that’s done, just click on “Install WordPress.” Okay, so it says here that the MySQL Database has been created, and this is the name of the MySQL Database, and then just some confirmation notes here that I’ve chosen to install WordPress on the root directory of my website, and this is the access URL, of course, in this example I’m just using, “youractualurl.com.” But this would be your actual website URL. And then, you’re gonna click on “Finish Installation” to finalize the setup and upload all the files to your web server.
Okay, and success! Your new WordPress blog has been installed for you, and you’ll see the information that you entered earlier, so in my case, I’m gonna log in with the username Admin and my password, and the full URL that you can log in to isshould be listed right here. Now if you want to have a copy of the installation details, then you can just enter your email address in this section here and click on “Send Email,” and all this information that you see here would be emailed to you. But for now, I’m just going to log in to the WordPress dashboard itself. I’m going to click on the dashboard log-in URL.
So you would probably see a log-in screen like this, and just enter the information that you have entered earlier in this setup process, and click on “Log In.” And I have successfully logged in to my new WordPress blog. And you can see that the site name that I’ve entered is right here, and if you want to preview your WordPress blog, then you can just click on the link here that says, “Visit Site.” And here, you can see the default WordPress installation this is how your WordPress would look like every time you install a new WordPress blog. So that’s how you install WordPress using cPanel.
