Support » Installing WordPress » Issue when installing wordpress

  • I have bought a domain name and web hosting from go daddy. Then i installed wordpress when i try to open my admin page (https://mydomainname.com/wp-admin) it doesn’t open my admjn page it gives me an error page saying that this page doesnot exists. I tried two ways the first one is by instaling the wordpress from cpanel from software applications the second way is that i have downloaded wordpress as zip file from google and import it in the file manager but both ways doesn’t work. How can i install wordpress to be able to build my website

  • If you want to go the manual route, it is not enough to simply upload the ZIP – you also have to unpack it. Take a look at the instructions here: https://developer.ww.wp.xz.cn/advanced-administration/before-install/howto-install/

    If you want to go the cpanel route, it’s best to contact your hoster’s support team.

    Do you mean that when i install the wordpress and add the zip file inside the file manager i should follow the above steps to install wordpress?

    No, just follow the description. Or summarized super simply:

    1. download the ZIP from https://ww.wp.xz.cn/download/.
    2. unpack the ZIP on your local PC.
    3. upload the unzipped files via FTP to the prepared hosting.
    4. go to the domain of your hoster and follow the installation dialog.

    Not more.

    I did the setup but i am not able to access “wp-admin” page, it is giving me “Page Not Found We can’t seem to find the page you’re looking for” and a file is being created in the public_html folder named “deleteme.ssxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.php”, what seems to be the problem ?

    This strange file is probably generated by a security tool in your hosting. This is not something WordPress does.

    If you also have the wp-admin directory in the httpdocs directory, the installation itself should be fine. If you cannot access it, you are either using the wrong domain for this or the domain you are using does not point to the httpdocs folder you are looking into via FTP.
