Most cPanel Hosting has integrated Softaculous Apps to help us install popular CMS applications such as WordPress, Joomla, PrestaShop, etc…
Normally, in order to install WordPress on Hosting, we have to do the following steps:
- Create a MySQL Database and offer user to manage the Database
- Upload WordPress core to the directory of Website
- Start to manually install step by step
According to Softaculous Apps Installer, we take only 10 seconds to install WordPress:
6 steps to install WordPress quickly
STEP 1 – Software Setup
- Version: it is supported both WordPress 5 and WordPress 4 today, version 5 starts to using Gutenberg Editor and some other upgrade versions. Some plugins and themes are not compatible with version 5, so we choose version 4, we will upgrade it easily in the dashboard later
- Protocol: if you have installed Let’s Encrypt SSL for the domain, we should choose the https: // protocol, if not, you should select Http:// in order to have SSL later, we will switch it to https:// by the Really Simple SSL plugin.
- Domain name: you should be careful because if you do not notice it, you will install WordPress for another domain on the same hosting.
STEP 2 – Site Settings
Enter a title and description for the website which you can edit it in the dashboard after installing WordPress
If you use Multisite, you select Multisite – note that if you do not want to manage multiple Websites on the same Dashboard system, you should not select this section.
Multisite is not easy to use, so if there are only 2, 3 Websites, you should install it each Website separately.
STEP 3 – Admin Account
Enter information about the Administrator account.
STEP.4 – Site Languages
According to the language section, you should choose English. You can choose Vietnamese or any other language in DashBoard later.
STEP.5 – Select Plugins
Options allow you to install some popular plugins first:
- Loginizer: plugin allows you to have the maximum number of login attempts which helps you to prevent password cracking programs by using trial and error methods to hack. According to security, we have used iThemes Security, so it is not necessary to install this plugin.
- Classic Editor: if you use WordPress 5 and you do not want to use the Gutenberg Editor and still use the old classic editor, we should install this plugin, because Gutenberg Editor is new and some themes and plugins are not supported. You should choose to install the Classic Editor.
- wpCentral: if we choose Multisite in step 2, we should install wpCentral to easily manage our sites.
STEP.6 – Email notification
Enter the email that you want to receive notifications about installing and updating WordPress.
After entering the necessary information, Click Install and enjoy the results after a few seconds!
