How to Install WordPress within Fantastico in cPanel

WordPress is the best website and blogging platform out there, and it’s already built-in free with OLI Website Hosting accounts.

You can install it by first logging into cPanel.

Do a search in the upper left for “Fantastico De Luxe” — click that and then click the WordPress link on the left, click “New Installation.”

When filling out the fields *be careful* with the directory name in to the “Install in directory” field. If you already have a website or forum at your top-level domain,, then you will want to enter a new directory for the word press installation. For example: “blog” or “website” or “home” — then it won’t overwwrite your existing content.
