Blogging: How to Create a Wordpress Site

blogging, wordpress, softaculous, site, domain, webhost, free
Creating a Wordpress site can be very Easy and Complicated.
i will try as much as possible to be brief.

there are two type of Wordpress, the .com and the .org read the difference Here
this article covers the self hosted wordpress(.org)
Before making a decision of Using wordpress, i believe you must have bought a domain and a webhost, if you havent, you have to firstly Purchase a Domain and a Webhost.

Click Install Now, a menu will appear where you are to fill in the necessary data, please note that whatever you fill in is what your site will look like but can be changed in the dashboard settings except the directory in which you stored Wordpress.
if you want Wordpress to be your main Site, Under the "in Directory" option, it is default set as "WP" delete it.

then after Filling up the form, Choose a theme at the bottom last.
i prefer you leave that aside because it can be changed later from your dashboard to avoid certain inconveniences.
click install and wordpress will be installed on your preferred site and after successful installation, it will provide you with two links
  1. http://yoursite.com ---- this leads to your new wordpress site
  2. http://yoursite.com/wp-admin ----- this leads to your dashboard.
after successful login into your dashboard with the username and password you provided during installation, i advice you change your login Link with a plugin called Loginurl.
to avoid hackers and spams and to tighten security install plugin "reCaptcha for Login"

Congrats the Rest is up to you to Manage
