How to install WordPress on Nexcess
Nexcess does not offer a 1-click WordPress installation process, but yet installing a WordPress is quite an easy thing to do.
In this installation guide, we are going to show you how to install Nexcess in the proper way on 4 easy steps.
1. Download WordPress
2. Set up Databace
3. Upload Files With FTP
4. Instalation Process
Step 1 (Download WordPress)
To start with, you have to download the last official WordPress release to your computer. You can do it from https://wordpress.org/download/.
Unzip or extract the files in a folder of your computer.
Step 2 (Set Up The Database)
After you’ve downloaded your WordPress archive, you have to set up your database with SiteWorx. From the PHPMyAdmin from your SiteWorx account, go to Hosting Features -> MySQL -> Databases
Then in the Database name, type a name for your new database. It is preferred not to use spaces or any special characters.
Step 3 (Upload Files With FTP)
After you’ve set your database, you have to upload your WordPress files to your hosting account. Have in mind that you do not have to upload the folder itself, but the files inside it. To do that, download any FTP software such as FileZilla for example, and with it connect to your hosting.
Then, you will see a folder called “HTML“. Open it and upload all of your WordPress files inside.
Step 4 (Installation Process)
After you have uploaded all of your WordPress files to your hosting, you should try to enter your website with its URL, but instead of your domain name, type “yourdomain.com/wp-admin/install.php.” This will activate the WordPress installer and you will have to enter your site title, log in information, and your email address, as well as some information regarding your database. When you fill all of the fields, click on the Install WordPress and wait for your installation to be completed.
