This article is aim at beginners.
Things you need before starting:
- A web host with cPanel and myphpadmin.
- Download the latest wordpress.
- FTP software to upload files.
First, I will go through the wordpress setup with my HostGator account using my cPanel.
If you don’t have a web host already I would recommend you to go sign up with HostGator.com. They have everything you need and much more.
When you have your web host account setup. Login to your cPanel, then click on “MySQL Databases”, create a “New Database” and create a “MySQL Users”.
Once you created your new database and the MySQL user you will need to assign the MySQL user to that database. To do this go to the bottom of the MySQL Databases page where you find “Add User To Database”. Use the drop down to select the user and the database and click the “Add” button. That’s it. Your database is ready.
Then go to the wordpress website and download the latest wordpress. Extract the file and use your FTP software to upload all the wordpress file to your domain. If you’re using HostGator with their cPanel you should upload the files to the folder like this /public_html/MySite.com
Once finish upload all the wordpress files, go to your website on your browser by typing www.MySite.com, this is where you will install wordpress and just follow the setup instructions. You must remember your database username/password and your MySQL username/password.
