Installing WordPress on DirectAdmin

Installing WordPress on DirectAdmin

This example I will use my domain name as the example.

Adding MySQL database

You need one database to run the WordPress. You can create the MySQL database by using the tutorial from here.

Please remember or write down the database name, username and the password that you’ve created. Because we need to use it later.

Installing WordPress using SSH

I would like to use SSH to do my job:

# cd /home/juzhax/domains/
# wget
# tar -zvxf latest.tar.gz
# mv ./wordpress/* ./
# rmdir wordpress
# mv wp-config-sample.php wp-config.php
# vi wp-config.php

Installing WordPress using FTP

If you would like to upload using FTP, you can try to get FileZilla – The Free FTP solution, and install it from here.

Download the from
Extract the file to your PC C:\Downloads\wordpress\ folder
Upload all files to your /domains/

// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress */
define('DB_NAME', 'juzhax_wordpress');

/** MySQL database username */
define('DB_USER', 'juzhax_wordpress');

/** MySQL database password */
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'thisismypassword');

/** MySQL hostname */
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');
