How to Install WordPress in cPanel Using WordPress Toolkit

To install WordPress using the WordPress Toolkit, follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to cPanel.

    Please see this article if you do not know how to log in to your cPanel account.

  2. In the¬†DOMAINS section of the cPanel’s home screen, click WordPress Toolkit:
    cPanel > Domains > WordPress Toolkit
  3. The WordPress Toolkit page will load. Under Installations, click Install:
    Installations > Install


  4. Under Choose installation options, there are multiple options to customize your site:
    • Installation path text box: you can optionally specify a different folder to install WordPress.

      If you want your domain name (for example, https://mywebsite.com) to go directly to WordPress, please leave the Installation path text box empty.

    • In the¬†Website title¬†text box, specify the title of your site.
    • In the¬†Plugin/theme set¬†list box, you can optionally select a package of plugins and themes to install.
    • In the¬†Website language¬†list box, select the language for the site.
    • In the¬†Version¬†list box, select the WordPress version you want to install.
      Unless you have a specific reason for not doing so, you should install the latest version.
    • Under¬†WordPress Administrator, type the username you want to use to manage your site in the Username text box.
    • In the¬†Password text box, type the password you want to use for your WordPress admin panel.

      We strongly recommend that you use a strong password! Alternatively, you can generate a random password.

    • In the¬†Email text box, type a valid e-mail address. This address is used to receive update notifications and can be used to reset your password if needed.
    • Under¬†Database, you can optionally change the database settings.
      (There’s no need to change any of them unless you have a specific reason).
    • Under¬†Automatic Update Settings, you can optionally change the settings for WordPress, plugin, and theme updates.
      (There’s no need to change any of them unless you have a specific reason).
  5. Click¬†Install. WordPress Toolkit begins the installation, and you’ll see the installation progress:
