WordPress is an open-source Content Management System (CMS) that can be downloaded and set up without charge using the cPanel Softaculous Apps Installer. The purpose of this tutorial is to demonstrate how, with just a few clicks, you can have a secure and uncluttered WordPress installation that is ready for content creation. It is intended for both novice and experienced users.

The popular programs slider on the main Softaculous page also includes WordPress, so take note of that. Whatever method you choose, you will always end up on the application's installation tab. Click on the Install Drop-down → Quick Install/Custom Install. Quick Install includes basic options, while Custom Install lets you predefine more aspects of your website.
You must set up the pre-installation choices after you have accessed the setup interface. They are conveniently divided into a few sections, which we will go over right away.
Once you have accessed the Custom Install setup interface, you will need to configure the pre-installation options. They are conveniently separated in a few sections we will review in the next lines of this tutorial.
When you are done setting up all of these settings, the installation process can begin. Click the Install button at the bottom of the page to get started.
You will get all the information you need to access your newly activated WordPress instance after a brief wait. To avoid damaging your WordPress installation, make sure you don't close the window throughout this process until the progress bar hits 100%.
Congratulations! The WordPress application has been successfully deployed using Softaculous.
