It is not necessary to manually install WordPress as it can be quickly installed via QuickInstall, however, if you are having trouble with this method, this article will cover the steps needed to install WordPress manually.

Step 1: Download WordPress

  1. Download the WordPress package to your local computer from http://wordpress.org/download/.
  2. Unzip the downloaded file to a folder on your local computer.

Step 2: Upload WordPress to Hosting Account

There are three available options for uploading WordPress to a hosting account.

Step 3: Create MySQL Database and User

WordPress stores its information in a database. Therefore, a database will need to be created.

  1. Log into cPanel.
  2. In the Databases section, click the MySQL Database Wizard icon.
  3. For Step 1: Create A Database, enter the database name and click Next Step.
  4. For Step 2: Create Database Users, enter the database user name and password and click Create User.
  5. For Step 3: Add User to the Database, click the All Privileges checkbox and click Next Step.
  6. For Step 4: Complete the task, make note of the database name, username and password, as you will need them for Step 4See Below below.

Step 4: Configure wp-config.php

The wp-config-sample.php file contains the database information and tells the WordPress application which database to pull information from. This step must be completed to ensure the correct database information is associated with the WordPress installation.

The wp-config-sample.php file can be found in File Manager in the folder where WordPress is installed. To modify the file:

  1. Log into cPanel.
  2. In the Files section, click the File Manager icon.
  3. In the pop-up box, select Web Root and check the box  for Show Hidden Files (dotfiles), then click Go.

    If you don’t see the pop-up box, you may have selected the “Skip this question, and always open this directory in the future when opening File Manager” option.

    To make the pop-up reappear, simply click reset all interface settings at the very bottom of your cPanel.

  4. From the left navigation menu in File Manager, click public_html to expand the folder.
  5. Click the folder containing the WordPress installation.
  6. On the right side of the File Manager screen, locate the wp-config-sample.php file.
  7. Right click on the file, select Rename and change the name of the file to wp-config.php. Click the Rename File button.
  8. Right-click on the wp-config.php file and select Code Edit. When the file opens, look for the following information:

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘database_name_here’);

    /** MySQL database username */
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘username_here’);

    /** MySQL database password */
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘password_here’);

    1. Replace database_name_here with the name of the database you created (above in Step 3: Create MySQL Database and User See Below).
    2. Replace username_here with the username of the database you created.
    3. Replace password_here with the password of the database that you created.
  9. When done editing, click the Save Changes button, then close the file.

Step 5: Run the Installation

Open a new browser window and go to the installation page to run the installation script. Depending on where you installed the script, you will find it at either of the following URLs:

http://example.com/wp-admin/install.php

http://example.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php

Be sure to replace example.com in the example above with your actual domain name.

You should now see a welcome page that says “Welcome to the famous five minute WordPress installation process!”

Step 6: Complete the Installation

On this page, fill in the fields for:

  • Site Name
  • Username
  • Password (needs to be entered twice)
  • Email address (login information will be sent to this email address)
  • Select whether or not to have the search engines index the site

Click Install Now, and you should be taken to the final screen, showing the following message:

Success! WordPress has been installed.

How To Install WordPress

 

Install the WordPress cPAddon

In order to allow users to install WordPress as a cPAddon, hosting providers must enable the WordPress cPAddon via WHM’s Install cPAddons Site Software interface (WHM >> Home >> cPanel >> Install cPAddons Site Software).

To enable WordPress installations as a cPAddon, perform the following steps:

  1. Navigate to WHM’s Install cPAddons Site Software interface (WHM >> Home >> cPanel >> Install cPAddons Site Software).
  2. Select the WordPress row’s checkbox.

    Important:

    We deprecate WordPress (legacy) cPAddon in cPanel & WHM version 64 and disabled the it in version 70. cPanel & WHM servers now automatically create new installations with cPAddon’s RPM-based WordPress installation package that we added in cPanel & WHM version 64. To read more information about the cPanel & WHM deprecation schedule, read our cPanel Deprecation Plan documentation.

  3. Click Update cPAddon Config.

Reminder:

In cPanel & WHM version 64, we updated the cPAddons feature to use RPMs to install WordPress. When you install the WordPress cPAddon, the cPAddon also installs the WordPress Manager cPanel Plugin. This plugin includes the WordPress Manager interface (cPanel >> Home >> Applications >> WordPress Manager). The WordPress Manager interface allows you to manage the WordPress installations on your cPanel account. We only provide this plugin with the new version of the WordPress cPAddon.

Enable Moderation

Warning:

In cPanel & WHM version 66, we deprecated the moderation feature and will remove it in the future. You cannot enable moderation for any cPAddons. Any cPAddons that currently use moderation will continue to function but, if you disable it, you cannot reactivate moderation.

To moderate installations for the WordPress cPAddon, perform the following steps:

  1. Navigate to WHM’s Manage cPAddons Site Software interface (WHM >> Home >> cPanel >> Manage cPAddons Site Software).
  2. Select the cPanel::Blogs::WordPress checkbox.
  3. Click Update Moderation.

Important:

For the WordPress (legacy) cPAddon, you must not modify or delete the default WordPress plugins and themes that the cPanel installation provides. WordPress will not update properly if you modify any of these files.

For more information about how the system handles cPAddons notifications and permissions, read our Manage cPAddons Site Software documentation.

WordPress installation issues

Document root issues

Note:

In the following examples, the following statements are true:

  • example.com represents the domain name.
  • example represents the account name.
  • subdomain represents a subdomain’s directory.
  • addon.com represents an addon domain name.

Due to potential conflicts in the .htaccess file, do not configure multiple WordPress installations to share a single document root.

If you experience difficulties with WordPress, check the following requirements:

  • Each cPanel account user can host only one installation of WordPress in the document root directory.
    • The following are examples of document root directories:
      • /home/example/public_html/
      • /home/example/public_html/addon.com
      • /home/example/public_html/subdomain
  • Each directory may only contain one WordPress installation.
  • If the subdirectories are not a document root, cPanel account users can install additional WordPress installations in subdirectories under the domain’s home/example/public_html directory.
    • The following examples demonstrate installations that use the wordpress subdirectory:
      • Under the document root for the main domain: /home/example/public_html/wordpress
      • Under a subdomain: /home/example/public_html/subdomain/wordpress
      • Under an addon domain: /home/example/public_html/addon.com/wordpress

For more information, visit the WordPress website.

Database connection errors

If WordPress returns a database connection error, ensure that the database’s name and password in the wp-config.php file are identical to the database credentials in your account.

For a document root installation, the wp-config file exists in the /home/username/public_html directory, where username represents the cPanel account name.

To change the database’s username or password, use cPanel’s MySQL Databases interface (cPanel >> Home >> Databases >> MySQL Databases).

Note:

If your hosting provider installed the new RPM-based WordPress cPAddon, you can use cPanel’s WordPress Manager interface (cPanel >> Home >> Applications >> WordPress Manager) to update your WordPress database user’s password.

To test a username and password combination, run the following command (where db_user represents the database’s authorized username):

mysql -u db_user -p

After you enter the command, enter the user’s password. The system will respond with a success or failure message.
