Install WordPress in Hostgator Using Quickinstall


In the past, one of the best ways to install WordPress in Hostgator was through Fatastico. I’ve heard from some fellow bloggers though that this has stopped working for them. Others have also remarked in the past that Fantastico just wasn’t as straightforward as they would have wanted it to be.

Today, there is a faster and easier way to install WordPress. You can now use Quickinstall in Hostgator.

1. First thing’s first, you need to make sure the nameservers of Hostgator have been specified in your domain registry account.

2. Once that’s done, go back to Hostgator and click on Addon Domains. Fill in the details in the Create an Addon Domain section, generate a password and click Add Domain.

3. Go Back to your Hostgator dashboard and click on Quickinstall.

4. In Quickinstall, click on WordPress on the left hand sidebar. Click Continue, locate the domain you want to install WordPress for from the dropdown menu and fill in the blanks with the information required.

5. Click Install Now! and you’re done.

Easy peasy. 🙂

How to Install WordPress in cPanel Using Fantastico

 

Before you install WordPress, make sure your host’s name servers are already entered in your domain registrar account. There is a separate tutorial for that if you have yet to accomplish this.

Follow the video instructions above or the steps below to install WordPress in cPanel using Fantastico.

1. Login to your cPanel account. You should have received your login details from your host through an email.

2. After logging in, navigate to the Domains section and click on Addon Domains.

3. Type the new domain name minus the www.

4. Specify an FTP username. Save this information somewhere. You will need this if you need to edit your site using an FTP tool.

5. Specify a password or, if the option is available, click on Password Generator. Copy the generated password and save it along with your FTP username. You will also need this for site editing through FTP.

6. Click Add Domain.

7. Click HOME to go back to cPanel Home.

8. Go to the Software/Services section and click on the icon Fantastico De Luxe.

9. In the Fantastico dashboard, go to the left sidebar and click on WordPress.

10. Click on New Installation.

11. On the dropdown box for Install on domain, choose the domain name where you want to install WordPress.

12. Specify an Administrator username, Password, Admin nickname, Admin e-mail and Site name.

13. Click Install WordPress.

14. Copy and save the MySQL database and MySQL user specified for your site. You’ll need this in case you later want to transfer to another host or to transfer your blog files and database to a new owner.

15. Click Finish installation. Copy and save the your WordPress login URL, username and password.

You’re done! You can start tweaking your WordPress settings and start blogging now.
