In order to use WordPress, you’ll need to install it. This can take a few minutes and involves a little understanding of the backend of your hosting plan if the hosting plan doesn’t already have WordPress and an installation option.
Installing With FTP
First, download the WordPress package from www.wordpress.org/download. Once you download the file, unzip it to expand it. Many new website builders will download using a file transfer protocol (FTP) if the hosting provider doesn’t already have a WordPress database set up for you. If it does, you’ll be able to choose from one of the many templates offered. Find one that fits the way you want to display your information.
Installing With phpMyAdmin
Using phpMyAdmin to install may vary from hosting plan to hosting plan, so it’s best to contact customer support for exact directions. Generally speaking, you’ll go to the backend of the hosting plan and locate databases. Choose a name for your WordPress database, such as WordPress. You’ll then enter that name, underscore, and your user name and select create database. Choose the “general” language if you don’t see your language available.
Next, you’ll want to Add a user and select a password. This will be specifically for the WordPress site, so make sure you note it or otherwise secure your password. Then select Go. Go back to the Users screen and select Edit privileges for the icon of WordPress that was just created. Select all Privileges and click Go.
