Now you can easily install applications like WordPress with just a few clicks and entering some user information. The tutorial below will guide you through the process. Please click on the images to enlarge for more details as needed.

In order to use WordPress and other applications, you must have the Complete Plan or higher.

Step 4.

Click on the name of the application you want to install. This will bring up information about the application including a link to the author's website. Click the "Install" link to add the application to your website. You will be asked to choose an installation directory and asked to create an administrative password that will be used for this application after the installation is complete.

Step 5.

WordPress has been successfully installed to the selected directory. Make a note of the URLs given for the WordPress installation and the WordPress administration.



Step 6.

After Wordpress is installed, you can choose to install third party plugins, themes, and WordPress even includes a built-in update tool.  In order to add these extra features, you will be asked for your FTP credentials.  You only need three pieces of information for an FTP connection within WordPress and you can find more information about how to locate your FTP settings at http://www.truepath.com/faq2/ftp-faq.html. You can avoid having to enter your FTP credentials each time by installing the auto-ftp plugin.

Step7. (Optional)

Because the easy installation method above installs wordpress in a sub-directory, you may want to follow the guide at http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory to have the WordPress installation show up at the domain name.
