How to install WordPress and other programs

It's pretty easy and we'll guide you through it here. Don't worry, you can do this!

  1. Log into your services control panel. Instructions on how to do that are here: How do I manage my services?
  2. On the left hand menu, click "Install Scripts"
  3. Locate "WordPress" in the list and check the box to the left of it's name
  4. Scroll all the way to the bottom and click "Show Install Options"
  5. Select the database you want to use (it will default to creating a new one, but you can choose any database you may have created)
  6. Choose if you want Wordpress installed at "top level" or a sub-directory. You probably want "top level" here. If you want to make sure or would like some further info, Here's some help deciding which of those makes sense: What's the difference between top level and sub-directory?
