Good Day Liza-Mari,

This is how to install WordPress.


Wordpress can be installed from your cPanel, as explained below:


* Log in to your Client Zone - https://clientzone.afrihost.com
* Select on Hosting tab
* Select your domain
* Click cPanel
* Log into cPanel

  • Once in cPanel, scroll down to the Software Section of the page. 

  • Select Softaculous Apps installer 

  • Select WordPress. 

  • Select Install 

  • You will then be required to set up the software and fill in the WordPress installation details.  
    The following details are necessary, the rest of the details you can fill in at your discretion: 
    Choose Protocol - If your site is using an SSL certificate or not. It is recommended that you have an SSL.   
    Choose Domain - Select the Domain you want to install your WordPress on from the drop-down menu. This should already be added in your cPanel.  
    In Directory - Leave this blank to install on the domain directly.  
    If you are installing in a subfolder of your site you type the folder name here. This will make the blog load like the following: example.com/foldername. 
    Admin Username - Enter your username for your WordPress Dashboard login.
