Manual install of WordPress
Expert Tip!– if they don’t have 1-click-installation, maybe you’re dealing with a unprofessional host
1. Download WordPress http://wordpress.org/download and save it to your local drive on your computer
2. Create a new folder on your desktop or somewhere on your computer and unzip WordPress in that folder.
3. Find the file named wp-config-sample.php and change the name of it to wp-config.php. You can do this by right clicking the file and selecting the option “rename”.
4. Open the wp-config.php (with Notepad or Dreamweaver) and fill in the following lines:
define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘database_name_here’); – Database name (if you don’t know it, ask this from your hosting support)
define(‘DB_USER’, ‘username_here’); – Your hosting username
define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘password_here’); – Your hosting password
Once you’ve filled in all the areas noted in the above example, save the file.
