all right today I'm going to show you how to install WordPress when you're using siteground as your host so first you want to log into sycron which I've already done and this is the page you're going to see after you've logged in and then go up to the tab my account and click that then go down to cpanel click go to cpanel and proceed then find auto installers your minds near the top and then click WordPress so first this is going to by default be on the overview tab so they're telling a bit about WordPress but we want to install it so click install and so the first thing we're going to want to do is choose a protocol you'll probably want to leave it to http for today unless you're doing e-commerce or maybe a membership site any sort of site where you need to keep secure information such as credit card data and stuff like that so if you're not doing ecommerce or something similar to stick to http otherwise you'll probably want to do HTTPS you will have to do some other things like set up an ssl certificate but that's a topic for another day so today we'll just keep it to http and we're going to want to choose a domain and you likely just have one there so make it fairly straightforward and you'll want to most likely leave this input empty this way it will just install WordPress right to your root domain so when you go to for instance in this case if I went to web monkey BD calm all I would see the website right there now I'm not going to do that today because I already have a website there I want to do a separate install in another directory and so let's do this is our directory and you'll see how that works in a moment now under database settings you'll see we have a table prefix this is something you're likely going to never see or really have to pay attention to and you can just leave that as it is unless you know what you're doing in PHP my admin and you know and mysql but likely don't so just leave that as its default I mean you can give it a prefix of your own let me can leave it to touch short for tutorial just so you know if you are digging around back there you can easily identify what's going on okay so your site name this is actually going to show up on your WordPress site so and this can always be changed later your site name and site description but you might as well put it in now and you'll see where this shows up in a bit now just leave enable multi-site unchecked because that's you're not doing like they're going to be doing a multi-site stuff you're just going to have a single site now under admin account you'll want to choose a username and this is the username you're going to use to log in to the WordPress administration area so it's important that it's something you're going to remember because you're going to be doing all of your posts or content creation blog posts choosing themes and all that stuff in your admin area and if you don't have access there you're kind of out of luck so you might want to write it down somewhere your username and password and then pick a password that sort of strong because you do not want people guessing this because if they can get into your admin area after guessing your password or hacking it each of your passwords are easy to hack they could literally take over your site or delete it or whatever so pick something strong that's going to be really difficult to guess and you know if it's too difficult to remember right again write it down but keep it in a safe place and then your email sent your email address that you use limit login attempts select language that's pretty obvious and select plugins so limit login attempts that's a good one I usually leave this one checked by default I think it limits it to five login attempts and if you fail to login after those five you get locked out for a period of time so this is just good to keep keep people up that are trying to guess your passwords and log in without permission and so now we're going to install and then WordPress is now installing so this shouldn't take too long it only takes maybe a minute there it goes alright and now we have an installation and we're good to go so you can see now here is where we've just installed it now if I click this there is your new website and here's the title we entered tutorial site and now let's just log into the admin area you can see choose the administrative URL you can maybe write this down or save it somewhere another easy way to do this is just to remember that you can always just type in WP admin at the end and that will bring you to your login and I wrote down my password and should be logged in alright so we're logged in and it's a little bit glitchy for some reason which is weird I'll have to have to look at that anyway login this is the back end and this is where you'll be doing a lot of work alright so this is the back end and this is where we'll be doing a lot of different things such as writing posts creating pages menus adding plugins setting up your theme choosing a theme all that fun stuff and we'll be doing that in the next part of this series so we'll see you soon .
