Blog Installation Tutorial

Here’s a new step-by-step tutorial on how to install WP blogs on your server with the new cPanel interface and the latest BackupBuddy plugin (version 8.0). The whole process is actually very simple and easy to do and can be done in less than 10 minutes.

The installation process is divided into 3 parts:
Part 1: Upload Installation Files
Part 2: Create MySQL Database
Part 3: Run the Installation Script

For this guide, it is assumed that you already have a Web host account that uses cPanel as control panel. Also, it is assumed you have your own domain name ready.

Make sure your domain name is pointed to your webhost. Here’s a quick guide on hot to configure your domain’s DNS: How to Point a Domain to Your Webhost

If you are installing this blog on an AddonDomain or to a subdomain, make sure that addon domain or subdomain is working. For beginner’s read this guide: How to Add a Domain or Subdomain

WARNING: DO NOT install WordPress on the destination server. The importbuddy script will install all files, including WordPress. It is therefore advised that you delete any existing WordPress files to avoid installation conflicts.
