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
