STEP 3: Fill out the credentials, if you had forgotten the username and password, you can check it in your Email Inbox.
After logging in, you will see the Offer page of Awardspace, skip this page by clicking on the “Home” button.
Now its time to install wordpress, For installing wordpress, we have a Feature in our control panel named as “Zacky Tools Installer”. This feature is also known as “Fantastico Installer” in other control panels. If you have other company’s hosting account, check for “Fantastico Installer” in your control panel.
If this option is missing in your control panel, means you cannot use the one click installation of wordpress or any other scripts. For that you have to do the manual installation; will be discussed later.
But before installing wordpress, as I told you single wordpress installation requires one database. Lets create a Database First.
For Creating a database, Choose the option of “MySQL Manager” Under “Website Manager”.
STEP 4: Now fill the Username “which you would like to set as the username for accessing the database”. Enter any password of your choice. Don’t Change the version. Click on “Create Database”.
STEP 5: Get Back to Home, scroll down the Page, and Under the “Website Manager”, choose the option of “Zacky Tools Installer”.
STEP 6: Choose the Domain Name, Next Leave the Directory Blank, because it means it will be installed in the root directory i.e. http://www.domainname.co.cc/ rather than http://www.domainname.co.cc/directoryname/ , Choose the Database. Enter the username and password for the admin section of your wordpress blog. Don’t Forget to select “Wordpress From the Blog Category Below”. SCROLL DOWN TO END OF PAGE AND CLICK ON INSTALL.
