Install Wordpress on your Webspace

Now that you have your webspace, you need to install Wordpress.

Create a mySQL database in your admin panel (Depending on your host, you might also have to add a new user and connect him to this database (with all privileges)).

Head over to and download the latest version.

Extract the compressed file in a new directory (I’d recommend calling it wordpress).

Open a text editor of your choice and open the wp-config-sample.php in your new directory.

Replace putyourdbnamehere, usernamehere and yourpasswordhere with the name of your new database, the database-username and its password.

Save the file as wp-config.php (without the -sample).

Upload the directory’s content to your webspace (not in a subdirectory).

Run the install script - Open your browser and point it to http://yourdomain/wp-admin/install.php (you have replaced yourdomain with your actual domain, right?)

Follow the instructions.

You’re done. Congratulations, your blog awaits you.
