Installing WordPress on Fused.com¶
Installing WordPress takes just a few clicks. We highly recommend making use of Installatron, which will ensure it keeps updated automatically & more secure.
- Navigate to navigate to our client area & log in.
- From there, select services > my services.
- Next to the hosting account you wish to install WordPress on, select the green active link.
- Next, select 'Login to cPanel' on the left.
- In the upper right search bar, type 'installatron' & select the first result.
Finding WordPress within Installatron¶
We're now in the installatron applications browser.
Let's ignore everything here, find the WordPress under
Apps for Content Management & select it.
We're now in the installatron application overview for WordPress. There's some information here that could be useful, but the most handy part is the 'Install this application' link.
In the upper right, select 'install this application'.
Don't be too concerned about messing something up, the most important parts are installation location & update settings — everything can be changed later.
The location dictates where the installation goes on your account. In the domain dropdown, you can select any domain or subdomain on your account to install it to. By default, it'll pick your main domain name.
If your account isn't empty, make sure to install WordPress in a sub-folder. You could enter random gibberish into the directory to make certain. We can always change this later.
If your account is not new/empty, make certain to enter a folder name, otherwise it could potentially overwrite your data. There are some safeguards that prevent it from installing over top of existing content, but it'll do as told generally.
|Version||Unless otherwise desired, always install the latest version espescially with WordPress|
|EULA||The agreement doesn't ask for your firstborn, parse it if you're a lawyer|
|Automatic Update||Highly recommend that this is enabled|
|WordPress Plugin Automatic Update||Highly recommended|
|Wordpress Themes Automatic Update||Highly recommended|
|Automatic Update Backups||Leave this intact, it'll generate a backup before any update that you can restore to.|
|Username & Password||You might want to make note of the username/password. By default, these are randomized. You can alter them as desired, but please use a strong password.|
|Administrator Email||Enter your email here. By default, it grabs the cPanel contact email|
|Website Title & Tagline||These are alterable later if you change your mind.|
|Two-factor authentication||While we recommend 2FA (2factor authentication), we recommend alternative plugins in our WordPress documentation section|
|Limit login attempts||Leave this intact. It'll block those who attempt to bruteforce your login|
|Enable Multi-Site||Unless you know what this is, and what it does, leave it disabled|
|Advanced section||Avoid tinkering in here if this is your first time at the rodeo|
Onwards, it's installation time.¶
Lastly, click 'install' in the lower right.
If all went well, you should now be returned to a screen like this:
This section of Installatron is titled 'My applications'. It shows you a listing of all software you've installed through Installatron. Note that in the upper right, there are now two tabs — 'My applications' & 'Application Browser'. You'll need to keep note of those moving forward.
Now, back to what's on the 'My Applications' tab.
On this screen, you can manage all of your installations. Any time you want to manage a specific installation's backups, cloning or settings, you can use the icons on the far right, which are as follows: Edit, backup, clone & uninstall.
You can use the checkboxes to modify multiple installs at a time if desired, especially for 'Updates'
Logging into WordPress¶
Before we get any further underway, let's click (and close, after you've reviewed it) the link with wp-admin in it beneath your blog's title. Selecting it will open the WordPress administration panel, and bypass having to remember usernames & passwords. Yay!
All set — you're ready to start.¶
You've installed WordPress! You're done! You can likely visit it on the web at your domain name.
