Load WordPress.org to Your Blog Host with SimpleScripts

SimpleScripts is a one-click installer that enables you to load the self-hosted WordPress.org blogging application to your third-party blog host account quickly and easily. Many web hosts provide a control panel (referred to as a c-panel) where you can access SimpleScripts and install WordPress within seconds. If your host offers SimpleScripts installation for WordPress, just follow the steps below to install WordPress in a snap. You can also follow the link to the SimpleScripts  website for more information.

1.  Open SimpleScripts in your hosting account.

If there is a SimpleScripts icon in your blog host account c-panel, just double click on it to open SimpleScripts one-click installer.

2.  Click the WordPress link.

Find WordPress in the list of available applications available for installation through SimpleScripts, and click on it to open the main WordPress Installation page.

3.  Click the Install button.

When you click the Install button, the installation process begins and the Installation Setup Page opens.

4.  Select the version of WordPress you want to install.

Step 1: Installation Preferences provides a drop-down menu from which you can select the version of WordPress you want to install to your hosting account. Most likely, this will be the most current and stable version with the highest number.

5.  Enter the domain where you want WordPress installed.

What is the domain of the site you plan to use this installation of WordPress on? That’s the URL you enter in this text box. Note that you have to purchase the domain and associate it with your hosting account before you install WordPress or it won’t show up in the drop-down lists of sites where you can do your installation. In other words, you can only install WordPress on domains that you own, and you first have to tell your host that you own the domain. If you purchased the domain through your blog host, it will probably automatically show up in this drop-down list.

6.  Select the Click Here to Display link and enter your blog’s title.

Under Step 2: Advanced Options, select the Click Here to Display link in order to expand that section of the Setup page. Then you can enter your new blog’s title in the Please Give Your New Site a Name box. Keep in mind, you can leave this blank or change it later if you need to.

7.  Create your WordPress dashboard username and password.

Select the checkbox next to Generate a Random Administrator Username and Password for Me if you want SimpleScripts to create them for you. However, if you prefer to create your own username and password, enter them into the text boxes provided.

8.  Select the Automatically Create a New Database checkbox.

Select the checkbox next to Automatically Create a New Database, so SimpleScripts creates a new database with your WordPress installation for your new blog.

9.  Check the box to show you’ve read the legal information.

Step 3: Legal Information is where you have to agree to the various legal terms and conditions related to the WordPress installation. Select the checkbox next to I Have Read the Terms and Conditions of the GPLv2 License Agreement to show that you agree to the legal terms. Note that the name of the license agreement could change in the future, and you can always click on the license agreement link to read it in its entirety.

10.  Click the Complete button.

Select the Complete button to begin the WordPress installation on your chosen domain. The Installation in Progress page will display on your screen while WordPress is installing.

11.  Copy the information provided after installation is complete.

When your WordPress installation is complete, your screen will update and display a link to visit your new live blog where the default WordPress home page will appear. You’ll also get a link to log into your WordPress dashboard as well as your username and password which you can immediately enter into the WordPress dashboard login page to start blogging! Write all of this information down and save it in a safe place for access later. This information will also come via an automated email message from SimpleScripts which is sent to the email address associated with your blog hosting account.
