IT Nut Hosting provides you two different ways of installing WordPress in cPanel hosting. Both ways are very simple and easy to walk on.
Installing WordPress with WordPress manager
You can install WordPress in just a few clicks from cPanel with WordPress Manager. To do that:
- First, log in to your cPanel shared hosting account and click on “WordPress Manager” at the very bottom on Applications Section.
- Click on the “New Site” button
- Select the domain that you want to install WordPress from the “Installation Domain” dropdown menu. And then click on the Install button to begin your installation.
- Your installation will begin, and you should see a progress bar. After the installation is finished, your WordPress admin username and password will be shown on the screen. Save that information for future reference. You can now log in to your just installed WordPress from /wp-login.php as usual. Here is a visual guide for the process:
