If you do not have the Fantastico auto installer on your account or
just choose not to use it, you have the option to install WordPress
manually. Please, follow the step-by-step guide below in order to
activate Wordpress on your hosting account:

                 How to install Wordpress manually
  Step 1: Download the installation archive from the WordPress
download     section by    clicking    on      "Download.zip"      or
"Download.tar.gz". This way you will get the latest stable release of
the WordPress application.

  Step 2: Upload it to the public_html folder of your hosting
account. You can do that via FTP with a client like Filezilla or via
cPanel -> File Manager -> Upload file(s). This way, after the
installation is completed, the WordPress blog will appear once you
visit your website.

Another option is to create a subfolder in your hosting account and
upload the archive in it. The WordPress installation will be
accessible at:

http://www.yourdomainname.com/subfolder




  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 on 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 how to do
so can be found in our MySQL tutorial.
   Step 5: Rename wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php and edit
it. Fill in your database connection details in the following lines:


define('DB_NAME',     '');      //    The       name    of       the       database
define('DB_USER',        '');        //         Your         MySQL         username
define('DB_PASSWORD', ''); // ...and password



Please note that you should type the full name of the database and
the MySQL user. Let's assume that your cPanel username is
"mynewsit" and your domain name is mynewsite.com. If the name
of your database is "wpress", the user is "wpuser" and the
password for the MySQL user is "0la;mip" you should update the
lines in the wp-config.php file to:


define('DB_NAME',                                              'mynewsit_wpress');
define('DB_USER',                                              'mynewsit_wpuser');
define('DB_PASSWORD', '0la;mip');



You can also in order to secure your WordPrchange the default
database prefixess installation.


  Step 6: Open in your browser:

www.yourdomainname.com/where_wordpress_is_extracted/wp-admin/install.php


This should set up the tables needed for your blog. If there is an
error, double check your wp-config.php file, and try again.


  Step 7: The installation procedure is finished. You can save the
administrative username and the password. You will need them to
access the WordPress installation admin backend in the future.
