Setting up WordPress on SiteGround.

1) First go to: https://ua.siteground.com/login.htm

Enter your credentials and click SIGN IN.

Next click WEBSITES at the top and then click on SITE TOOLS.

Change The URL On Siteground

Now look for WORDPRESS on the left sidebar and click it to expand it. Then you will select Install & Manage.  Then look for WORDPRESS again and click the SELECT button underneath it as shown in the image below.

One click WordPress Install On Siteground

 

You will now configure your website and choose your username and password. Set up everything as shown in the image below. Do not install the WordPress Starter. 

Choose a log-in name and password. Write these down so you can remember them.  You also need to change the email to an email that you check frequently. If you reset your password or anything it will go to the email you choose so make sure this is set correctly.

For the rest of the form leave everything as is and click the install button.

Configuring WordPRess in Siteground

When you click install you should get the following screen:

WordPress installed correctly on Siteground

If you want to automatically log in to your website then click on the “Admin Panel” and if you want to view your website click “View Website.”

You should see one of the following three things when you visit your website:

1. Either This:

WordPress Default Page

2. Or This:

WordPress Nothing Found Error

3. Or This:

WordPress default screen

This is just a blank installation of WordPress. If you scroll down you can see the first post and some categories.  This is what people will see when they visit your website.  But what we are interested in controlling the backend of our website.  So let’s get logged in.

Enter your URL and add /wp-admin at the end of the URL.  For me to log in it is:

http://ArnieRobinson.me/wp-admin/

You are either going to see a log-in screen where you need to enter the username and password you were given earlier or you will see the backend because you may have been automatically logged in.  If you see the following, enter your credentials:

WordPress Login Page

You should see the WordPress Dashboard which is going to look something like this:

WordPress Default Dashboard

This is where we are going to make all the changes to our website and write some posts throughout the semester.
