how to download wordpress manually!

INSTALLATION OF WORDPRESS MAUALLY

 

Though you can install wordpress in just a click from your hosting account but,if due to some odd reasons you are not able to do it.

Here is the guide to do it manually..

STEPS YOU NEED TO FOLLOW–

1) Download WordPress from here: http://wordpress.org/download

2) Create a new folder on your desktop and unzip WordPress in it

3) Look for a file named wp-config-sample.php and rename it to: wp-config.php

4) Now open the wp-config.php (with notepad for example) and fill the following lines:

  • define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘database_name_here’); – Database name (if you don’t know it, ask this from your hosting support)
  • define(‘DB_USER’, ‘username_here’); – Your hosting username
  • define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘password_here’); – Your hosting password

After you have filled the gaps, save the file.

5) Now log into your hosting ftp (download FileZilla for that). The FTP address is usually ftp.yourdomain.com, username and password are the same that you used to register to your host.

6) If there is any file named “index” – delete it. After that upload all the files from your WordPress folder to your FTP server. I believe you can use “drag n drop” function in FileZilla.

7) Once you have completed the previous steps, go the URL: yourdomain.com/wp-admin/install.php
