Installing WordPress

WordPress is a very powerful and effective tool for creating both blogs and regular web sites.

Please use your control panel to install the application.

1. Log in to your control panel. This is available at http://hosting.yourdomain.com (whatever your domain name is). Use your web site password from your “welcome” email. Your user name is your domain name (no “www” at the front!).

2. Select “Install Scripts” and choose WordPress and click on “Show Install Options

3. Important: Choose WHERE to install WordPress. If you wish to use WordPress for your entire web site, select “At top level”. Or to create it as, say, a blog comprising just a part of your web site, choose a sub-directory (eg “wordpress”)

That’s it!
