  • Create a database and a user, make sure that the user has All Privileges when you add the database to the user. And also, make sure you have the database name, user and password in a note, because you will use these later when installing it.
  • Download WordPress from and upload it to your server via File Manager or FTP. (Yeah you can also use SSH, but these two are the easiest ways.)
  • Extract the zip file in File Manager, the files will be in the WordPress folder, so open the folder, select all files and move it to the folder that you want.
  • Go to the url and you will see the installation page, like language selection, add database name, user & password and title.

Then you’re done and start blogging!
