Creating a new website is a great way to start your online career. Using the same template as your current website, you can create a new website just for yourself!
In this article, we will discuss how to create a new website byusing the same template as your current website. You will learn how to add content and design your own site!
There are two main ways to install WordPress on your own server. The easy way and the hard way. The hard way is to download and install from download sites like getmywebsite.com or www.thewordpress.com. The hard way is to create your own WordPress installation through this method.
Extract the file
Once your computer has connected to the internet, you can begin the process of installing WordPress. You can do this either by downloading a complete new installation file from my site, or by manually extracting the files into your computer.
Either way, you will need to navigate to your newly installed WordPress site to activate it.
Once activated, you can now continue with the rest of this guide!
Now that we have started, it is time to stop. By now, most of your computer will have freshly installed WordPress up and running. Try posting a short post or two and see how things work.
Open the folder
Now open the wp-admin folder you just created. If you created it using the default path, then you are set!
If you created it elsewhere, then continue below!
If you created it elsewhere, then continue below!
Bullet point: Look for any files or folders that are referenced in your blog post’s index.php file or another file referenced in your website. These may be hidden or temporary files that WordPress creates to give your site some look and feel.
If you find any, delete them as they are not needed.
Double click on the “wordpress” file
After downloading the WordPress file, open it and then click the “connect” button. This will bring up a window where you can enter your email and then select connect.
You will then be taken to their website to update your settings and create a new account. Once this is done, you can start using your new WordPress site!
Now that your new site is installed, you will want to change your username and password so that someone else cannot access it. This can be done by clicking the “change password” link at the top of the dashboard. Make sure you know your new password so that someone cannot get into your account!
Now that everyone on your site has an email, they can login using that! If they forgot their original username and/or email, then they can create an account at wp-login.
Enter your database information
Once your computer has connected to the internet, it must give permission for the wp-admin administrative interface to access your website. You can do this by entering your database information in the entry screen.
Your computer will ask if you want to allow other users to access your website, which you do by default. You can turn this off at this stage, however!
After you have installed and registered your new WordPress site, you can move forward creating a blog or hosting a page!
