    • In the Installation path text box, under General, you can optionally specify a directory in which to install WordPress.
      If you want your domain name (for example, https://www.example.com) to go directly to WordPress, make sure the Installation path text box is blank.
    • In the Website title text box, specify the title of your site.
    • In the Plugin/theme set list box, you can optionally select a package of plugins and themes to install.
    • In the Website language list box, select the language for the site.
    • In the Version list box, select the WordPress version you want to install.
      Unless you have a specific reason for not doing so, you should install the current version.
    • Under WordPress Administrator, in the Username text box, type the username you want to use to log in to the site.
    • In the Password text box, type the password you want to use for the username to log in to the site. Click the eye icon to view the password.
      Make sure that you use a strong password! Alternatively, you can click Generate, and cPanel generates a strong, random password for you.
    • In the Email text box, type a valid e-mail address. This address is used to receive update notifications and other news.
    • Under Database, you can optionally change the database settings.
      The database options are for advanced users. You do not need to change any of them unless you have a specific reason for doing so.
    • Under Automatic Update Settings, you can optionally change the settings for WordPress, plugin, and theme updates.
      You do not need to change any of these settings unless you have a specific reason for doing so.
