Installing WordPress using WordPress Toolkit
Updated Thursday January 28th 2021 / Category Web Hosting

cPanel’s new WordPress Toolkit feature allows you to quickly and easily install WordPress. Here are the steps you need to take:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. Click on WordPress Toolkit under Applications.
  3. Click Install under the Installations tab.
  4. In the installation menu that appears, there will be quite a few options. At a minimum, you should adjust the following:
    1. Set the Installation Path to HTTPS and select the domain name you want to install WordPress under.
    2. Set your desired Website Title (this can be always be changed later).
    3.  Select a Plugin/Theme Set – we recommend WordPress Essentials.
    4. Set the Version to the latest available version.
    5. Ensure that you note down the WordPress Administrator Username, Password and Email.
    6. Advanced users may want to modify the database and update settings, but this is not necessary.
  5. Click Install.

Finally, you can log in to your WordPress website, you simply need to visit the following in your web browser:

http://your-domain-name-here.com/wp-admin

If your DNS isn’t set up for your new website yet, you can log in by modifying your computer’s hosts file.
