Many cPanel users (as well as people who use other types of control panels) consider WordPress as one of the most powerful content management systems (CMS) available in the market today. Of all the available CMSs out there, this one takes the lead because of its ease-of-use, power, and its many other features and benefits.
When you want to install WordPress, you may choose to do so using the very popular “5-Minute Installation” process. However, this only applies to Windows users. For Linux users, installation requires a bit more time, but worry not, as it is just as easy to do so.
Installing WordPress on a cPanel Domain
When you want to make use of all the available features and take advantage of the benefits WordPress has to offer, the first step requires you to install the CMS on your own hosting account. This will pave the way to you having the ability to use the system to create your website or create a blog.
Follow these instructions to install WordPress on your cPanel:
Gaining Access to Your Newly Downloaded WordPress Account
Now that you have downloaded WordPress, you can start navigating it through logging in to your account.
Go to this URL for the log in process: “http://[your WordPress domain name]/wp-admin” (do not include the quotation marks).
Once the page appears, key in the credentials you created previously (username and password) and then click on the “Log In” button.
Although the above described installation method does take longer than the popular “5-Minute Installation” process, the additional few minutes will really be worth it, what with all the benefits you can get from WordPress.
