Wordpress Installation in ISPManager

This article will help you to know how to install Wordpress in ISPManager.

To install WordPress according to these instructions, the ISPmanager panel and LAMP stack must be installed on your VPS server.

Also, your domain must be attached in the control panel.

  1. Download the latest version of WordPress from this link: https://wordpress.org/latest.zip
  2. Log in to the control panel.
  3. Go to the File manager, click Upload.
  4. Select the zip archive uploaded in step 1.
  5. Click Extract. Next, extract the files from the archive to a folder. You can name the folder with a domain name, for example yourdomain.
  6. Create a new database for the site. It is recommended to create a separate database for each site. In the new database, enter the database name, database username and password.
  7. To rename the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php, highlight the file, click button, and choose Attributes, or click the edit button.
  8. To modify the wp-config.php file, select it and click edit.
  9. Enter the database name, database username, and password created in step 6 of this manual.
  10. Enter the name of the MySQL server. Typically, this is localhost. 
  11. Save your changes to the wp-config.php file.
  12. Open the page http://mydomain/wp-admin/install.php, where mydomain is the domain of your site.
  13. Enter the site name, username, password, and email address.
  14. Click sign in. You are now logged in and can make changes to your site.

ATTENTION! The control panel will create an index.html file in the site directory. It must be removed for the site content to be displayed on the Internet. Some hosting services remove it automatically.

If you have any questions, you can ask them in the online chat in the lower right corner of the site or by ticketing the Techsupport Department.
