Install WordPress

I hope you’re getting excited this is where the creation begins.

I’m going to show you how to install using SiteGround hosting.

Don’t get intimated I promise it’s a simple process that will take you less than 10 minutes.

 Quick Install Instructions


Step 1- Login to your SiteGround account

-Select My Accounts

-Select the “Go to cPanel” button

Step 2- Scroll to the middle of the page

-Under Autoinstallers- select “WordPress” icon

Step 3- Scroll down the page and select “Install Now”



Step 4- You will be at the Software Setup

Choose Protocol- Leave the default settings

Choose Domain-Select your domain name

In Directory-Leave empty

Step 5- Site Settings Page

-Site Name- List the name of your website

-Site Description- Put your tagline in this space

-Enable Multisite-You’re probably not creating a multisite so leave this unchecked

-Admin Username-Create a username-Make sure it’s something unique. You don’t want to make it easy to access your site.

-Admin Password-Create a password- You will want to be as creative as possible to make sure this is a strong password. You don’t want your password something that’s easy to guess. Just make sure to keep it in a safe place.

-Admin Email-Put the email address to receive your website information


Step 6- Just leave everything as is, unless you need to change your language

-Choose Theme-You could install your theme here, but I strongly suggest installing it after WordPress is installed.  I will walk you through how to install your theme in Chapter 5.
