WordPress is a popular blogging platform. You can easily install it from within WebsitePanel without manual uploading of files. You can either make use of an existing database or can create a database at the time of installation. Here is how to install WordPress from your WebsitePanel:
(1) Login to WebsitePanel
(2) Select Web App Gallery icon
(3) Select PHP, navigate to Page 2 and select WordPress. You will view a user interface as shown below
(4) Click WordPress and select Next button to continue
(5) In the Web Application Parameters page, provide the required information and click Install button to begin the installation process.
If the installer displays an exception message then you should either contact Arvixe support or manually install WordPress. I will examine how to manually install WordPress without using any FTP software in the next article.
