The wizard will guide you through the installation of WordPress. Below are our explanations and recommendations for choosing how you will install WordPress. Our recommended settings are chosen by default, but if you want to you can change them.

Location

The location means two things. The first is that the URL will be different, and the second means that the directory will be different.

Example:

  • http://www.yourdomain.com – main root directory
  • http://www.yourdomain.com/blog – sub folder directory

If you install WordPress in a subfolder, please enter your desired directory in the Directory (Optional) field in your WordPress installation wizard. This will create a separate URL and a folder in your hosting file manager that will contain your WordPress site.

Version
