Steps to login BlueHost, CPanel and Use SimpleScripts
Posted by Madhurie Singh on August 28, 2009
The First step after purchasing my website host i.e. BlueHost, using SimpleScripts. I have put down snapshots of each step, till I can see my website on the internet 🙂 !
When you purchase the hosting package from Bluehost or anyother Host, remember to keep the login name something that you will remember in your sleep too. And do not worry if you forget the password, they will mail it to you. SO I chose my name Madhurie Singh as the easiest memorable login name.
Step 1. Log into BlueHost .
Step 2: A look at the CPanel here :
Step 3: Click SimpleScripts icon on CPanel in a box named Software And Services.
Step 4: Click WordPress Icon under BLOGS
Step 5: WordPress Script Install Page
Step 6: Click the INSTALL button. It opens a new page where I have to fill in details of
the URL of my site ie http://www.MadhurieSingh.com and the sever path where my wordpress files will be saved.
Then specify the administrator name and change the password. I kept the name as ADMIN.
I am not changing the name of the Hostname which is LOCALHOST and Username which is ROOT.
Then I also have the choice to name the database and prefix of all the tables.
If I donot wish to create the database name myself, I should not tick mark the option under advanced. I do know that when wordpress creates it’s own database name, its madhurie_wrd01 and the tables are prefixed as WP_.
Step 7: On Successful Installation of WordPress in the specified URL and Server Path, all Database and tables should be created by the Script. The page after Installation looks like this.
