    i installed with the help of a friend about 5 years ago. I was getting ECT treatments and I don’t remember doing this at all (installing wordpress). So I’m sort of retracing my steps by watching this. I guess I’m watching more out of curiosity than anything else. Thanks for the video!

  6. What if my hosting service has a hosting plan specifically for wordpress sites? I wouldn’t think that it’s any different than my current plan. Is there a difference or is it just a way to sell more plans to ignorant users?

  7. Hi, thank you! But I need help. At the end of all steps it does not open the website. I have created the database, the user, add it to the database; I have downloaded the WordPress and edited the ww-config-sample to ww-config with my db name, db user and password; I have uploaded all the WordPress downloaded files to my server in the public_html. But when I look for my website the engine does not find it… What could I have done wrong?Thanks!

    Thank you! I have never did this before, but from your tutorial I had no problem installing my first WordPress site.

  9. This is great but I’ve got stuck… On FileZilla – I can find the WordPress folder in my downloads… but I cannot drop it into the Remote Site on the right hand side as I am "Not connected to any server"… (I’m connected on the left side though). Can anyone help please? Thanks so much

  10. I followed your steps and everything went smoothly, but when I went to the domain afterwards, I was just directed to the same "We’re under construction." page that I already had up. I don’t get sent to the wordpress page that shows up when you type in your domain url.

  11. In filezilla the host name is the username and password of cpanel login? Or is it the one in SQL username and password?

    Please help I must have done something wrong. When I open my website it shows "Index of / and wordpress file" if I click on the wordpress file my website pop up. How can I fix this. Thanks great tutorial.

    I wanted to thank you a lot. I had some issues with filezilla and my server, mainly to many connections open, timouts, and connection erros but I finally was able to solve it.

    Also, the database creation was different since My server has CpPanel and you have to create there in order for the DataBase to appear at MyPhpadmin.

    Anyhow, it was really useful and I managed, after about 2 hours lol, to install it succesfully
