How to install WordPress? is probably one of the easiest questions to answer when it comes to WordPress Q and As. WordPress is the most popular free website creation tool on the internet.

One of the reasons for its popularity is the ease of installation. As easy as filling in the details of your website, like name, choose the domain, choose a user name and password, and voila! You are done and in less than five minutes your website will be ready.

Almost all web hosts provide one-click app installers like Softaculous and Fantastico. These one-click app installers give users the option to install tens of applications just in a few clicks with very clear instructions.

If, for some reason, you don’t like those easy app installers and would like to explore other options. There is the option of installing WordPress manually which may take a bit longer – probably just over five minutes.

I would not go for this option because you will always have the option of an auto-installer. If you insist on doing a manual installation then keep reading.

The last method, which is for designers and developers, is setting up the environment and installing WordPress on a local computer.


First of all, there are a few basic requirements in order to install WordPress.

You will need a web host and domain name. Go shop around if you already don’t have one. Make sure, you don’t fall for the unlimited $5 per month plan trap.

Understand your needs, your website and visitors then purchase a hosting plan.
