    Uploading WordPress to your cPanel

    Now, under your cPanel, go to file manager and upload the WordPress zip file which you have downloaded. Once you have uploaded the WordPress.zip file, click on extract and extract everything to public_html directory. (Note: it should be first WordPress installation on your cPanel).

    It will INSTALL WORDPRESS TO (www.YourDomainName.com/Wordpress)

    Since we are doing installation on main domain, (www.YourDomainName.com) and not (www.YourDomainName.comWordPress), we will move all files to directly under /public_html director by using move command. Browse to /public_html/WordPress using file manager again, select all files and click on move at the top, and move all files to public_html.

    In this file, here are couple of things which you have to change:

    // ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define('DB_NAME', 'database_name_here');
    /** MySQL database username */
    define('DB_USER', 'username_here');
    /** MySQL database password */
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password_here');
    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

    Executing WordPress Manual installer script

    Till now, we have done all the basic settings which we need to install WordPress manually. Now, all we need to do is run the WordPress install script, give a user and password to your wp-admin and do some basic settings. Here is last thing which you need to do to have your WordPress blog up and running:

    Go to this URL:

    http://www.YourDomainName.com/wp-admin/install.php (replace domain.com with your actual domain name here). First select the language of WordPress installation

    On the next screen, give a username and password to your WordPress installation. Try avoiding giving admin as username and use a complex password. Once everything is set, you can login to your admin dashboard by going to following link. Replace YourDomainName.com with actual domain name
