Before you install WordPress

Before you begin installing WordPress, you’ll need a good web hosting provider. You can get cheap, shared space on a web server.

But this tutorial covers the steps to manually install WordPress on your own web server. To do this, you’ll also need four things…

First of all, you’ll need FTP access to your web server, which should have been furnished to you by your web hosting provider.
Second, you’ll need an FTP client. This is a desktop application that enables you to copy and transfer files from your own computer to your web server. FileZilla and Cyberduck are a couple of free FTP clients for both PC and Mac. In this video, I’ll be using Transmit, one of the best FTP clients for the Mac.
Third, you’ll need a text editor, like Notepad or TextEdit. And last, your web browser of choice. Chrome and Safari are best, because they support the latest HTML5 and CSS3 web standards. IE does not.

Let’s get started!

First, download and unzip the latest version of the WordPress software from When WordPress has finished downloading, switch to your downloads folder and locate the newly-downloaded .ZIP archive. Double-click the archive to expand it. And now, upload these files to your web server, using your FTP client.

Switch to your FTP client and locate the newly-downloaded WordPress files. Then, enter the FTP credentials furnished by your web hosting provider and connect to the web server. Most FTP clients work in a similar manner; on the left-hand side are the files on your own computer, and on the right-hand side the files on the web server. Select all the files on the left-hand side and then drag them to the right-hand side, which will begin uploading the files to the web server.

When the files are finished uploading, switch to your web hosting control panel. For this demo, we’re using SiteGround as our web hosting provider, and they use the popular cPanel for account management. This may look a little different from your own web hosting control panel, but they all offer essentially the same functionality.

You should have a “Database” module that enables you to create MySQL Databases. WordPress does not store content in files, but rather in a database, and each page in your site is created dynamically by WordPress, every time a visitor loads one of your pages.
