4.1.1 Website builder. How to install a website engine (CMS) automatically
This method allows you to install the site engine you are interested in automatically. But when using this method, the CMS versions will not always be the latest, so after installing the site, perform all updates in the site’s administrative panel. You can also install any CMS of any version manually, as shown in the example here, but this method will require a little more manipulation than automatic installation.
Please note: to install a website you must order hosting service and domain name. You can also install a website without a registered domain name, but in this case only you will be able to see it on the Internet. This can be done as follows like this.
1. To start creating your website you need to log into your hosting account. The parameters for accessing the hosting control panel were sent to you in an email when ordering the service. You can also view them in your personal account in the “Products and Services” section by highlighting your service and clicking “Welcome”.
2. If you specified a domain name when ordering hosting services, it will be automatically parked on your account. If not, then in the ISP control panel, go to the “Domain Names” section and add your domain, checking all the appropriate boxes when creating it.
3. Now type your domain in the browser. If it is parked correctly, you will see an inscription stating that the site has been created, as in the picture below. So you can start installing your site.
4. Now you need to go to the “File Manager” to the WWW folder, then to the folder with the name of your site, this is where the site files are located. Select the index.html file with one click and click on the icon at the top “Delete”. This is the same plug that you saw in the previous picture.
1. Next, go to the “WEB scripts (APS)” section and click the “Install” icon.
2. Now select from the list any engine you are interested in, for example we will select joomla. And click “Install”.
3. Select from the list your domain on which you want to install the site, because there may be several of them. We leave the “Path” field empty, it is intended if, for example, you want to install the site in the “your.domain/forum/” folder, in which case /forum/ is written there
4. In the following form, fill in the administrator data and database parameters, your mailing address, if there is such an option, you can select the language in which the site will be installed. Using the administrator data, you will then log into the site’s administrative panel and edit your site. With the database parameters you will be logged into phpMyAdmin. Therefore, save all this data for yourself.
5. We wait some time while the site is installed. After installation, we will see a window with links to the administrative panel and to your website itself.
6. For example, we installed Joomla. Joomla’s administrative panel is located at “your_domain/administrator/”. You must enter the login information that you specified during installation. This is what the joomla admin login panel looks like:
7. As stated at the beginning of the article, automatic installation does not always allow you to install the latest versions of the CMS, so after logging into the admin panel, install all updates, this will make your site safer. This is how it looks in the Joomla admin panel:
8. When installing a CMS such as Wordpress using this method, a problem may arise when going to the admin panel. If this happens, you need to go to the “WWW domains” section, double-click on the domain and uncheck SSL in its properties. After which you need to repeat the installation, Wordpress will install without any problems.
