However, this tutorial describes the steps to manually install WordPress on your own Web server. This is a tutorial: To install WordPress manually with bPanel Stage 1: Stage 2: Uploading and Unpacking the WordPress. Please copy the following files from the download folder into the required location. OK, so at this point I assume that you already have a host using cPanel and that you have already set up an add-on domain or subdirectory. Search and browse to this folder in the Files Manager.

In the cPanel's top bar, choose Upload and search for the document you download from As soon as the uploaded zipped files are complete, go back to the folder by following the instructions "? Go Back to "/home/yourserverhere/public_html/yoursitehere". Inside the folder-Root you will now see the Wordpress. Zip-File.

In the cPanel icon at the top of the screen, click Unzip to choose this one. Then click on "Reload" in the cPanel taskbar and you will see the Wordpress directory that has been selected. Now you can erase the zipped files to keep everything beautiful and tidy.

Stage 3: Move your Wordpress file back to the roots location. You should now see all WordPress documents by double-clicking on the wordpress file. Click the field "Select All" in the cPanel-Bar. Now all WordPress documents should be emphasized. On the cPanel sidebar, choose "Move File" and a Modal appears with a path to " /public_html/yourdirectoryname/wordpress".

Delete the " /wordpress" tag at the end of the tree and click on Move file(s). You should now move all your data to your folder and click "Up one level" on the icon bar to display it. Stage 4: We've completed the first few stages and now it's your turn to set up the data base that drives your website.

Browse to the cPanel' s primary Dashboard and find/click the "MySQL Wizard " symbol. As soon as you are in the wizard, you will be asked to build a new one. You will see your preferred data base followed by an overscore and an empty space where you can type your data base name "yourserver_blankarea". The empty area is where you type your data base name and keep it in a secure place for later use.

At least 3 chars should be used for the name of the data base and only alpha-numeric chars should be used. The system now prompts you to register a user for the data base. You will see your preferred data base displayed again, followed by an inverted comma and an empty space where you can enter your data base user name "yourserver_username". No more than seven alpha-numeric symbols are allowed in the user name of the data base.

Store the user name in a private place for later use. Either manually type in a user defined user name or use the included "Password Generator"... just make sure your user name and password is protected. After you have set up the database user, you are taken to a page where you are prompted to allocate authorizations.

You have now created your data base and you can continue inserting the data base information into the wp-config. php-files. 5: Okay, now it's your turn to go back to the correct folder in the Files Viewer with your data base information. Search the folder master of your website for the filename "wp-config-sample.php".

Then click on this filename and choose "Code Editor" from the top bar, click on "Edit" and open the . pdf-document. Find the line that is " define('DB_NAME','database_name_here');" and specify your name. Find the line that says "define('DB_USER','username_here');" and append your user name to the DB. Find the line "define('DB_PASSWORD','password_here');" and enter your data base key.

Stage 6: With your wp-config-sample.php open in the code editor, browse to the section called "*Authentication Unique Keys and Salts". Please check out the WordPress Unique Language Pattern and Salt Key generator here >> or as referenced in the included PDF "Cheat Sheet". Copying the unique phrases and salt keys that the WordPress-API generates and replacing the standard phrases that are in the wp-config-sample.php files.

As soon as you are done, click on "Save" and quit the code editor and go back to the folder tree. Now that you are back in the home folder of the folder, simply click on the wp-config-sample. file to mark it. Click on the "Rename" symbol in the upper tool bar and change the name of "wp-config.sample.php" to "wp-config.php".

When you click the Rename File icon, you are done with this stage. At this point you are all done with the cPanel part of this trial... Congratulations! It is now your turn to run the WordPress installation script by clicking this hyperlink here >> or the hyperlink on the PDF Cheat Sheet.
