If you are new to web hosting, and are looking at a very thorough explanation on how to install WordPress on a CPanel hosting account, then this video should be quite helpful. This video is a step by step guide, including a thorough explanation of the e-mail you should have received from your hosting company and what the information means, how to create a mysql user and mysql database, how to configure the WordPress configuration file (wp-config.php), how to upload the content to your shared hosting server, and how to complete your WordPress Installation and get online.

Here are the links I promised to provide in the video…

WordPress Download –
Winrar Download –
Filezilla Download –

Great Tutorial, only I get a Internal Server Error. Pretty Sure my config
file is ok. Could it be on the hosting side. WordPress Requierement are
PHP 5.2.4 or greater,
MySQL 5.0 or greater,
The mod_rewrite Apache module. Can it be related to the The mod_rewrite
Apache module? if so where can I check this. Thx in advance
