In this article, we describe how to create your first WordPress webpage. If WordPress (WP) has not yet been installed, please see Creating a WordPress site with cPanel and Softaculous to get started.
WordPress, which is free and open-source, was originally developed as a blogging platform back in 2003 but is now used for a myriad of things, including:
As of 2022, 43% of the web is powered by WordPress. To run WordPress, you'll need PHP, MySQL or Maria DB, and HTTPS support (i.e., a web server). Apache or Nginx is the recommended software for the web server component. In other words, WordPress runs on a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP). Installing the various LAMP components can be time-consuming and error-prone. This is where Softaculous or another auto-installer can come in handy. An auto-installer is essentially a library of software installation scripts (i.e., software that installs software). It generally takes just a minute or two to install WordPress (along with all of its components) using an auto-installer. For a step-by-step tutorial on how to install WordPress using Softaculous, see Creating a WordPress site with cPanel and Softaculous.
