How to Install Wordpress?
You can install Wordpress in 4 different ways.
Installation via FTP,
Automatic installation to Web Hosting with cPanel,
Manual installation on Web Hosting with cPanel,
Installation on Deluxe Wordpress Hosting,
The fact that there are so many installation options is because Wordpress is open source. Automatic installation with Web Hotinge cPanel with installation to Deluxe Wordpress Hosting are automatic installations. You can quickly complete the setup without creating a database and database user in these two methods, which differ only in the way they are implemented.
Manual installation with Web Hosting for cPanel and FTP installation are manual installations. Although they do the same, there are differences in terms of installation locations. Manual installers generally make changes to Wordpress codes accessed as open source. Of course, it is not necessary to make changes only in codes. As an example, you can delete plugins such as Hello Dolly and Aksimet that come with Wordpress files or themes like Twentyseventeen and Twentysixteen before throwing them to the server.
1. Wordpress Setup via FTP
It is different from the method of installing Wordpress with FTP from Web Hosting to Manual Installation with cPanel, in Wordpress files thrown to the server. FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is a protocol that establishes a connection between the client computer and the server. FileZilla, FileFTP, Cyberduck and CuteFTP are the most used FTP clients. We will explain the installation of Wordpress with the FileZilla client.
First, we create an FTP username and password via cPanel. After clicking 'FTP Accounts', we press the place that says 'Create FTP Account' and we create our FTP account.
After opening the FileZilla client, we enter the server IP, FTP username and password information in the fast connect section at the top and click on 'Quick Connect'.
After the connection is made, we will see the files on the server. We export Wordpress files that we downloaded in .zip format from the official website of Wordpress and drag and drop them into the public_html folder. For database, we press MySQL® Database via cPanel. We create the new database by entering the database name and clicking the 'Create Database' button, respectively. After determining the database user name and password, we create a new database user by clicking the 'Create User' button.

In the window that will open, we select the 'All Privileges' option and click on the 'Make Changes' button, and we connect the database user we have given full authority to the database.
When we write the domain address in the search bar of the browser, we will see the Wordpress installation screen. 'Continue' by choosing one of the languages that Wordpress supports. We proceed by checking the 'Let's Get Started' option in the window that will open. We write the database name, username and password that we wrote down and click on the 'Submit' button. Finally, you can successfully complete the Wordpress installation by determining the site title and clicking the 'Install Wordpress' button.
