How do you install WordPress looks at how you can easily install WordPress and get your site up and running.
Preparing To Install WordPress
The first stage is to download WordPress. It is well worth creating a new folder on your computer so that you can easily access all of the WordPress information you will use. These could be things like images etc. Make sure your WordPress folder is easy to find. I would recommend putting it on your desktop.
Now you are ready to download your WordPress files. You can do this by clicking the link below.
In order for people to see your website, you will need what is called web hosting. Every website online has web hosting. There is no way to avoid this.
There are many hosting companies available. Some are designed to host WordPress websites. One of these is BlueHost.
It is one of the cheapest yet most reliable.
If you want to find out more about what BlueHost can do for you, click the link below.
The easiest way for people new to WordPress is to use the one-click auto-installer provided by your hosting company. The image below if for the BlueHost control panel. It might look slightly different depending on when you are reading this post. Just look for an icon that says something about WordPress as shown below and clicks on it. It is in the second box second on from the right.
The next step is to just click on the icon. WordPress will automatically be installed for you. You will be asked a few questions about your site. This information is contained in your welcome email when you first decided on a domain name for your site. Make sure that you have this information handy.
