Installing WordPress is a straightforward process. Click To Tweet

Installing WordPress

Inside your domain control panel (cPanel) search for WordPress. If you are using bluehost, you will find it under WordPress Tools.

Click Install and choose the directory you would like to install your new WordPress blog. If this a new domain most likely you leave the directory blank so the blog will be installed on the Home Page. (YourDomain.com) Enter your blog title and tagline. You can easily change this later. Choose a username and password. Do not use admin as the username as it’s easily hacked. Enter your admin email address which can be used to reset your password. Everything else is optional. Click Install.

Once installed you’ll be directed to your blog or a page with the login URL.

WordPress Setup

Log into your WordPress blog and go to updates.

Update any current plugins and themes. The trick to a hassle-free WordPress blog is a secure password and keeping your plugins and themes up to date.

Inside your WordPress Dashboard go to Settings > Permalinks and change common settings to “Post Name”.

To change your homepage go to Settings > Reading. Here you can choose your latest blog post or any age you wish.
