Step 1: Login to your cPanel account
Step 2: Once logged into your cPanel account, scroll to the bottom of the page and you’ll find the WordPress icon under ‘Softaculous Apps Installer’. Select the WordPress icon highlighted below.
Step 3: To continue with installation, select the highlighted Install button below.
Step 4: Next, you’ll be taken to the Setup page. We’ll walk you through each section.
Choose Protocol: decide whether to use just http:// or http://www. (please note: choose the HTTPS protocol if your site has SSL).
Choose Domain: select which domain from your cPanel account that you’d like to install WordPress to.
In Directory: choose what directory to install WordPress in. Leave empty to install only in http://mydomain/. For example, to install WordPress at http://mydomain/blog just enter blog (please note: the directory should not exist).
Step 5: Continue filling out the Setup details.
Site Name: choose your WordPress name (and don’t worry -- this can easily be changed later on).
Site Description: this is the “tagline” and can also be changed later on.
Enable Multisite: leave this unchecked, unless you have experience using WPMU.
Step 6: You’re almost there!
Step 7: You will then be taken to a loading screen (as seen below).
Step 8: If you see the following screen below, then congratulations you have successfully installed WordPress!
Step 9: To check your WordPress site, visit the domain you installed it at. And to log-in to the Administrative URL (WordPress Dashboard) to start making changes, visit http://mydomain/wp-admin/ and enter the admin username and password you created in Step 5.
