How to Manually Install WordPress | Actually, install WordPress using softaculous is easier than the manual method. You just fill in the blank about your web info and click install. Then, you already have a WordPress site.

But, in some case, you cannot install it via softaculous. Maybe your host provider not provide softaculous in their server and need you to subscribe it if you want. So, the best way is you can install it manually.

Step 1: First of all, download the latest version of WordPress.
