WordPress Installation By Using FTP Client

Step One: Download the latest installation file from the WordPress download section by clicking on “Download.zip” or “Download.tar.gz”.

Step Two: Upload it in public_html folder (root) of your hosting space. You can do that via FTP with a client like Filezilla or via cPanel -> File Manager -> Upload file(s).

If you want to install in sub-domain, follow this:
Create a subfolder in your hosting account and upload the file in it. The WordPress installation will be accessible at: http://subdomain.yoursite.com or http://www.yoursite.com/subdomain

Step 3: When you are in cPanel -> File Manager, navigate to the uploaded file and extract it by clicking on “Extract”. The other option is to extract the file in your computer and then to upload the content in the desired folder via FTP.

Step 4: Once the files are extracted in the desired folder, you should create a MySQL database for WordPress. You can do that from cPanel -> MySQL Databases. Detailed instructions on how to create MySQL Database are explained here.

Step 5: Rename wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php and edit it. Fill in your database connection details in the following lines:

1
2
3
define('DB_NAME', ''); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', ''); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', ''); // ...and password
define('DB_NAME', ''); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', ''); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', ''); // ...and password
* You can also change the default database prefix in order to secure your WordPress installation.

Step 6: Open in your browser:
http://www.yourdomainname.com/
(it’ll automatically redirect you to /wp-admin/install.php for the first time.)
This should setup the database tables needed for your site. If there is an error, double check your wp-config.php file, correct the wrong values and try again.

Step 7: The installation procedure is finished.
