We have published various articles about installing WordPress on different operating systems and control panels. But we have not provided any training on Windows hosts and installing WordPress on Windows hosts. This article will teach you how to install WordPress on WebSitePanel.
We suggest using WordPress on a Linux host Because they will be automatically synchronized with WordPress. Unlike Windows hosts, you will have many problems setting the access level, security, updating the PHP version, and so on. What if your hosting used the original Windows Server license for your website server!
Note that if your hosting control panel is the website panel, you are using Windows hosting.
No problem. You can use WordPress on Windows hosts. But we suggest using Linux hosting with CPanel or Direct Admin. Sometimes your webmaster is more interested in WebSitePanel, and you have to install WordPress on WebSitePanel.
How to install WordPress on WebSitePanel
Let’s start installing WordPress. Naturally, at the beginning of your career, you bought a Windows host with a WebSitePanel. The address of the control panel host is yourdomain.com:9001. Naturally, you should enter your website address instead of yourdomain.com.
You will see the login page for WebSitePanel. Here it is enough to enter the username and password you received from your hosting company when purchasing the host.
You will then encounter such a page. Welcome to the WebSitePanel control panel. Where to manage your website (albeit with a bit of hassle). 🙂
Now is the time to download and install WordPress. You need to download WordPress and upload it to your file manager. So first, download the latest version of Persian WordPress from the WordPress download page.
Then click on File Manager. You will be logged in to manage your website files.
