So, there you are – sitting looking at a couple of emails: one with the keys to your domain name, one with the keys to your website, and now you’re going to have to get your act together and actually put WordPress on your site but you really don’t know where to go next.
Well, you have two options:
- You can use an automatic installer (usually provided by your web host, something like Fantastico, Softaculous, or Installatron).
- You can install it yourself.
Now, because this series is about really getting under the hood of what we’re doing, let’s focus on a full manual install.
Stay with me, it’s not too difficult if you follow the instructions methodically.
