First things first, sign up for a web host plan first. You can opt for any webs host of your choice. BlueHost.com is already an example which has been mentioned above.
Once you have signed up for a web host, log on to your cPanel. You can do this by going to the following link: http://yourdomain.com/cpanel
Now click on the simply scripts feature. You can also click on the Fantastico feature, which is an alternative way to doing things.
If there is no auto-installer, you will have to follow the four steps of the five minute manual install which are as follows:
- Download the WordPress Package and unzip it.
- Create a WordPress database on your browser. Also create a MySQL user who will have all the privileges to access it and modify it as per his/her needs.
- Upload the WordPress files on your desired web browser.
- Run the installation script for WordPress by accessing the URL in your browser. It depends in which directory you have installed the WordPress. Then visit the URL accordingly.
Now Install a WordPress blog.
The installation will arrange the files into three folders: wp-admin, wp-content, wp-includes. It will also install the loose files into the root folder. Mostly you will be uploading content through your wp-content folder.
The wp-content folder also includes two extremely important subfolders. The first folder is plugins and the other is themes. Once you upload a certain plugin, or even a theme to these folders while using FTP, then the plugin or theme is going to be available for activation inside your admin panel in the WordPress. Moreover, any images which you might upload while writing a post on WordPress, they are stored in the wp-content/uploads folder.
