Your Hostwinds WordPress Application Template includes a fully setup and installed WordPress installation, using the latest version of WordPress available.
It runs on one of our LAMP stack instances, which you can read more on here.
This Knowledge Base article will show you how to access FTP and MySQL. It’ll also explain where to upload your files and provide in-depth details on your server’s configuration.
Your WordPress login details to your server and your WordPress admin area for your server’s hostname will be provided to you via your welcome email.
Your WordPress admin username will be the same password as your server’s root password.
Brand New WordPress Website
If this is your first WordPress website, there are only two things you need to do to get started:
- Point your domain’s A record to your server
- Then login to your WP-Admin control panel (provided in your welcome email)
Existing WordPress Website
If you already have an existing WordPress website and you want to migrate your website to Hostwinds, you may submit a support ticket requesting the transfer if your service is fully Managed.
If your service is Unmanaged or you’d like to perform the migration yourself, follow the steps outlined here in our WordPress site to WordPress Application Template guide.
