How to Install Wordpress

The following installation instructions are for Stablehost only. However, most hosts operate on the same basic account page and cpanel so installing Wordpress on any other host should be just as easy.

Login to your Stablehost account.

Enter your USERNAME and PASSWORD. Click "Login to Portal." 

Click on your domain name under "Your Active Products/Services"

Click on "Login to cPanel"

Enter your username and password and click on login.

Scroll down to the Softaculous Apps Installer and click on Wordpress.

Click on install and follow the basic guidelines to add a new Wordpress installation.

Keep in mind that it's best to keep the In Directory field blank. This way your Wordpress installation will show up on your main domain page, ie "www.yoursite.com" instead of "www.yoursite.com/blog". Click on install.

Once Wordpress is installed, you will be provided with your site URL, admin login URL, username and password. Keep a copy of this information in a safe place.

Congratulations! You have successfully installed Wordpress on your website.
