- Step 7: Select the domain on which you wish to install wordpress on
- Step 8: This “In directory” field box is very important (remove anything which is pre-written in this box) else wordpress will be installed in yourwebsite.com/wp url which we are sure, you certainly do not want to.
- Step 9: Scroll down to Admin Details column
- Step 10: Choose your choice of Username (Remember it should not contain space and should be 1 word. Also never choose admin as username as it is very easy for hackers to hack your website)
- Step 11: Choose your choice of Password (Difficult, try to use words + numbers + symbol)
- Step 12: Choose Admin Email ID: We would suggest you to always enter your personal email ID and not official one as it becomes easy to retrieve password in case you forgets it.
- Step 13: Rest, Leave everything as it and click on “Install” button available at the bottom of the page
Here you go! The WordPress Installation is complete!! Enjoy
