I have Fantastico DeLuxe as a software service, on my Cpanel. So, here, click on the Fantastico icon if you have it too. I suppose you have a valid administrator login into your control panel. If you dont’t, pls contact your web-hosting company.

The next page is the Fantastico front end / home page, where available software services are listed. So lets go install wordpress.

 

step-1) Click on WordPress, and then New Installation

a) Install on domain – enter domain name. Mine came pre-filled: nairabytes.com

b) Install in directory – for this tutorial, I’m installing WordPress into its own directory ‘wp’ – without the quotes. Note, the access URL will be http://mydomainname.com/wp. If ‘install in directory’ option is left blank, WP will be installed in the default public folder provided by your webhost.

c) Admin access data:
– fill in a username and password for accessing the site.

d)Base configuration:
admin nickname – enter a nickname for the administrator

admin e-mail – enter a valid email address for the administrator. Mine came pre-filled.

Site name: was also prefilled: nairabytes.com

Description – enter a simple site description

After supplying necessary details, hit ‘Install WordPress’.

 

step-3) Hurrayyy, the installation is complete.

The portion red-marked is private to your own installation.
