How to install WordPress in cPanel

On the new page you need to fill in the installation details – domain name, installation directory, administrative login details, etc. By default Softaculous will select your primary domain name and it will attempt to install the application in your main web root folder – public_html. If you want the new installation to be in a sub-folder please type the name of the folder in the In Directory field. We also strongly advise you to change the default login details admin/admin to something else. This way you will be sure that a hacker cannot guess the login credentials. Please double check all details and then proceed to the next step.
