How to install WordPress using Simple Scripts or also known as the Mojo Markeplace from your Cpanel. The step by step tutorial with screenshots to help you get started and suitable for WordPress newbies. Simple Scripts can be found on your web hosting Cpanel but not all web hosting provide use Simple Scripts software, most of them use Fantastico De Luxe. Therefore, i have to provide two WordPress installation tutorials to help you get started. In this tutorial, i am installing the latest WordPress 3.7 version using Bluehost web hosting Cpanel. So, this answer most question on how to set up wordpress on Bluehost.
How To Install WordPress Using Simple Scripts
Log in to your Cpanel and click on “Simple Scripts” under “website builders” category or drop down.
You then will be redirected to Mojo Marketplace (beta version). This usually takes less than 1 minute depends on your internet speed.
Here we are on Mojo Marketplace dashboard. Now, let’s click on the “Install New Scripts”.
You’ll see various software that can be use on your website including Joomla, b2evolution, Drupal, PrestaShop, etc. Please visit their websites to learn what is their function. Like WordPress, it’s a blogging CMS. Just click on the “WordPress” as rounded in red.
I will be using a brand new installation so let’s click the “Start” button to get started.
Once you click the “start” button, you’ll need to check your domain that have been added to your web hosting. You will see a list of your domains there so choose the domain that you want the WordPress install on. Then click “Check Domain”.
You will get a warning of “OOPS! Looks like something already exists there!” What’s wrong? LOL! Actually, nothing’s wrong. If you are using Bluehost web hosting like i did, you will see a few default files inside your domain name directory. This is set up by Bluehost automatically as soon as you add your domain either as main domain, addon domain or subdomain.
You can overwrite all this files if you see only files as shown on the screenshot above. If there’s other files that you don’t recognize or other than what you see on the screenshot above (only for Bluehost) then you will need to contact your web hosting customer support to get help. Who knows if that’s the old WordPress installation that you don’t remember and you want it. As this is new installation tutorial then i assumed that there’s nothing there except for these default files. Then, we can continue with the installation by overwriting it.
Choose your admin username and password wisely! DO NOT use your real name or common words from dictionary to prevent bad things. Don’t worry to much about the Site Name because you can change it later. The admin email address is important too, Simple Scripts will send your login details to this email address. OK, are you done? Let’s click on the “Install Now” button.
Congratulations! Your new WordPress installation is complete and you can access your new website using the information provided. Simple Scripts will also send you an email containing the login URL and username but not the password so i suggest that you take a screenshot of the login details as above or copy and paste the WordPress login details given anywhere safe. That’s how easy to install WordPress using Simple Scripts! I hope you like this tutorial, please leave a comment below. 🙂
