How To Install WordPress on BigRock

There are two main ways to install WordPress on BigRock.

Install WordPress with cPanel

First off, you have to log in your BigRock cPanel account, and then search for the WordPress icon, that will redirect you to the Softaculous installer page, where you have to click the “Install” button.

  • Then, you have to fill the required fields in the Setup. Select the protocol of your website – if you have an SSL enabled, select “https“, then enter your domain name and specify the directory where you want your WordPress to be installed.
  • The next step is to set up your website name and description in the site settings.
  • The last thing is to set up the login attempt plugin, which is a security feature and will help you keep your account much safer. Then hit the Install button and you are done.
  • It takes just a few minutes to set up your WordPress website and then you can log in and start building it.

    Install WordPress Manually on BigRock

    The manual installation takes more effort than the first method with the Softaculus application, but if you still prefer to do it this way, here is how:

    First, you need to download the last WordPress release. You can do it from the official WordPress website here.
    Then, log into your BigRock cPanel account, click on the MySQL wizard to create your new database.

    On the next screen type your database name and click “Next Step“. Type your username and password and click “Create User“. Select “All Privileges” and proceed to the next step.
    It is important to remember or write down your database details, including your database name and password.

    Installation of WordPress on Your Domain

    Log into your BigRock cPanel and look for the “File Manager“, and you will see a window, find the public_html and create a new directory, where you will upload your WordPress, that you’ve downloaded previously.

    After you upload your WordPress files, extract the content of your .zip file by the “extract” button on the top right corner (see the image below)

    Make sure that you are extracting the files straight into your root directory because if you extract them into /WordPress/ for example, your website will be accessible when your visitors write down, and not only your domain name.

    Edit Wp.config

    You will need to open and update the information in your wp-config.php file, to do that open it with right-click, and then Code Editor, and search for the lines shown in the picture below:

    Replace the database name, user and password with your details and then you can go to and you will see a Welcome WordPress screen, that looks like that:

    On that screen, you can change your site title, and set your admin username and password as well as your admin email address.
    That’s all. You can now start building your WordPress website.
