Hello guys, welcome back to the another video session and in this video, I will show you how you can install WordPress blog on your Bluehost account, so far I have covered how you can buy webhosting from Bluehost, how to use Bluehost dashboard and in this video, you will learn how to install WordPress. The steps are very simple and you can do that in next five minutes, simply follow the video and if you have question in between, you can ask me via comments, so let’s go ahead and install WordPress blog.
So, once you are inside your Bluehost cPanel, you have two options, either you can clink on simple scripts, you can click on WordPress directly to install the WordPress, well both of them are the same thing. just for your information, simple script is also known as ‘Mojo market place’, click on WordPress, here this is the page where you will be doing all the magic, you will be installing your blog, click on install and on the next page, you need to select the domain name, so if you are on a plus package of Bluehost, you can have unlimited domain name, so in this case, I have only one domain name, so I select the domain name, I would strip www because it doesn’t add any value, click on check domain and after that, it will give two options, so I would suggest you to click on’show advance option’, change the username, title you can change anytime later but let’s do it now.
let’s keep the username as shoutmeloud, password as ‘changeme1’, make sure that this box is selected because this will create a database for your WordPress blog, select this option and that’s it, now all you need to do is click on install now, so this will take a few minutes and your WordPress blog would be installed, let’s wait for this step to be completed and then I will show you how to configure your WordPress after that, so if you see something like this, lets simply click on cross button, at the top you can see the progress bar of your WordPress installation, click on view details, now you can so, our WordPress installation is complete, now click on view credentials, click on view and that’s it, so this is your ‘wpadmin’ login, we go there and lets login and let’s see how does our blog look like, so that’s it, now your blog is up and running but before we move ahead, I’ll just take one more minute where I’ll show you few things that you would like to do, so simply go to plugins, disable select ‘Hello Dolly’, select ‘MOJO marketplace’ and disable this plugin, go to post and delete the first default post and simply there are few more steps you need to do so I have a video which shows what are the essential steps that you need to do after installing WordPress, I have added the link in the description, well, that is it, let’s go and have a look at the blog, so that’s it, our blog is up and running in like 5 minutes and now you can start blogging.
