How do I install and set-up WordPress?

Although you can download and install WordPress manually, we have made it very easy to do from your Web Control Panel using a 1-Click installation method.

To install WordPress, simply follow these steps:

  • Login to your Web Hosting Plus Control Panel
  • Look for the WordPress icon (W) in the CGI Scripts Box and click
  • On the next page you will be asked the installation directory you would like WordPress installed into (i.e., so enter the directory name of your choice
  • Click the ‘Install Now‘ button. And that’s it! A few seconds later WordPress will have been installed with a confirmation screen.

Once installed you can then fill out the short form on the WordPress set-up page. The ‘Help’ link at the top of the WordPress Admin pages will provide further details and help if you need it.
