Install WordPress in cPanel

As we do not want to advertise any hosting service, we have prepared this training on how to install WordPress in cPanel.

What is a hosting or accommodation?

Remember that a hosting is a space that we rent on a computer, where a web page or online project is normally hosted. In order to install wordpress you need a domain and a hosting, unless you install it on your own computer.

What is cPanel?

cPanel is a control panel used by the main hostings (lodgings) so that users can manage their rented space. There are some accommodations that have other types of control panel.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is a CMS (Content Management System). To sum it up a lot, WordPress is a program that we install on a computer (our hosting) that helps us manage our online project more easily.

If you have not seen it yet, we recommend that you review the previous class:

If you already have all the clear concepts, let’s start!

How to install WordPress in cPanel?

Do not panic! It seems like a very technical task but it will only take you about 10-15 minutes to do it.

Step 1: We will enter the contracted accommodation and cpanel if we have not done so yet. We will get a screen similar to this.

Step 2: If we have not done it yet, we will create the domain where we will install WordPress.

To do this, we will go to “additional domains”.

Step 3: We will add the data that they ask us, taking care to fill in everything.

Step 4: A confirmation screen will appear.

Step 5: Then we go to Automatic Installation >> WordPress.

Step 6: We click “install now”.

Step 7: We fill in the installation and configuration form data.

To consider:

  • Better to install the latest version of WordPress.
  • Better to install in HTTPS (beware that you may have to make additional adjustments in the hosting)
  • For the name of the site and the description, better to use keywords .

Step 8: We fill in the account information, languages ​​and plugins.

To consider:

  • Better not to put “admin” in the administrator user.
  • The weirder and more random the password, the better.

Step 9: Once the process is finished, it will indicate the URL of the control panel.

Step 10: Once we access, we can write the username and password that we have added previously.

Step 11: We can now access the WordPress administrator!

Step 12: We can also access the part of the web that the user will see.
