Step 1: Download and Extract

Download and unzip the WordPress package from Download Wordpress.

  • If you will be uploading WordPress to a remote web server, download the WordPress package to your computer with a web browser and unzip the package.
  • If you will be using FTP, upload the wordpress folder to your site.
  • After a successful upload, then you access your site URL and get this message:

Step 2: Edit the Configuration File

Auto Mode: After accessing the site you will get the configuration page:

Establishing a connection

If the information is correct and everything works fine you will receive:

Successful

If it's successful then skip the "Manual Mode" if not, follow the instructions bellow.

Manual Mode: You can either rename the file wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php on your local machine or on you server (you'll still need to tell WordPress your database information).

Open wp-config.php with a txt editor and enter your database information under the section labeled:

/** The name of the database for WordPress */
define('DB_NAME', 'database_name_here');

/** MySQL database username */
define('DB_USER', 'username_here');

/** MySQL database password */
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password_here');

/** MySQL hostname */
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

/** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

/** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
define('DB_COLLATE', '');
                    

After the information is edited upload the file to the server.

Step 3: Site name and login data

If it's all sparky then you click Run the Install and fill all the lines bellow:
