Today I’ll be sharing how I create self hosted
Wordpress sites for free.
But before we proceed,
What is Wordpress?
Wordpress is an online, open source website creation tool written in PHP. But in non-geek speak, it's probably the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today.
Just follow the steps below,
Step 1 After successfully creating an account on byethost or any other free host, login your account
Step 2 Click the Vista Panel logo so that it’ll go back to the homepage or Click on File Manager
Step 3 Scroll down and look for SOFACULOUS Apps Installer Click it. A New window will Open, here you can select the type of Content Management System you would like to install but I suggest you click On Wordpress. The one with letter 'W' in blue and white color:...
Step 4 After selecting Wordpress, scroll down and click Install Now. Scroll down gently there’s a box that contains WP in it. When you see it, clean the WP.
In the other box that is titled; 'site name', delete any text you see in it and put your site name e.g Wapforum. In the other box beow it that is titled; 'site description', put the description of your site e.g entertainment news, music and videos'... Now in admin username, insert the username and password you would like to use for login in your Wordpress site.
NOTE: Do not tick or mark any box there or fill anything that is not mentioned here...
Step 5: In the Email Installations below it, insert your email address you would like your login details to be sent to, after this click INSTALL NOW
Step 6 Login to your email address you’ll see see a message titled New Installation to Wordpress, Just click it there you'll see your wordpress Login details.
Step 7 Go to your login address which has /WP-Admin at the back of the link of your site e.g yoursite.byethost.org/wp-admin. This is where you will use to login to your site anytime. Let’s use the screenshot below as an example, Now login with the username and password you used when installing Wordpress in Step 5.
After login in successfully, the next page that
opens is your Wordpress site dashboard, just click MENU or DASHBORD to see the dashboard.
