Yes…Yes…Yes, we are almost there!

"Blogging"We have our domain name, our hosting and our domain name redirected. Congratulate yourself on a job well done! All that remains is to log in to our control panel (cPanel) and install WordPress.

What is cPanel?

CPanel is a Unix based web hosting control panel. It makes our lives as bloggers and webmasters so, so much easier. It provides us with a graphical interface and with automated tools, simplifying the process of hosting the website. Cpanel makes installing WordPress a snap. A word of warning, once cPanel is installed, removing it is very difficult. With that being said, I found cPanel to be very user friendly and easily learned.

 

Let’s Install WordPress via cPanel:

  1. Log in to your cPanel account.
  2. Find the icon for Fantastico De Luxe and Click on it. We are using Fantastico in order to install the WordPress script.
  3. On the left side of the screen, Choose WordPress. It will bring up a description of WordPress.
  4. Click on New Installation.
  5. Fill in your domain name, leave the directory field empty to install in the root directory, choose an admin name, choose an admin password, enter your e-mail address and last but not least Click Install.
  6. Fantastico will create all the necessary files, just Click Finish Installation.

Need a bit of help for a very reasonable price, you can try  I.M. 4 Newbies. If you need more help, I would be more than happy to aid you in setting this up.
