Next, click “Continue” button to start the process.
Step 04. Enter Your Website Information
I think, this part makes a little confusion to the newbies. Here I’m explaining the matter for more clarification.
Now you reach the most important step to configure your WordPress installation. For application URL, you’ll find your domain name on the left side and also a blank box on the right side. This blank box will allow you to install WordPress into a subdirectory, such as “blog” or others. This would make your WordPress site accessible at http://your-domain-name.com/blog instead of just http://your-domain-name.com. Many people like to add the subarea because they have another website with their main address.
But if you want to use WordPress for your main website, just leave the Application URL & keep the right box empty.
Add Other Information
Here you’ve to enter your admin email, choose app version, blog/website title, your first and last name. Make sure to enter a valid email address because a login password will be automatically generated and sent an email to this admin email address. For Blog Title, you should put the name that you’d like to call your website. For example, for mazaman.com, we would put “MAZaman” as the name.
Step 05. Click Install Now Button To Complete The Setup
Once you click Install Now, you will get a confirmation message that the WordPress installation was successful. This installation of WordPress is pretty simple and quick. You will get your automated login ID and password in your given admin email address. You can change this ID & password anytime. The default login page of your WordPress site is http://yourdomain.com/wp-login.php. So, why make late, enter your WP dashboard and start blogging.
