  1. How can I install WordPress?
    To install WordPress you can either install it yourself with the instructions provided by the WordPress team or you can use our autoinstaller system.

    To use our autoinstaller system:

    * Log into your account from our main website
    * Click the domain name for WordPress installation
    * Click the Tab Modules

    Select the Wordpresss link and our system will install it onto your website.

    The autoinstaller installs Wordpress in a subfolder to eliminate the risk of files already on the website getting overwritten. There is an override function that allows our autoinstaller access to your main catalog/root folder. If the override checkbox is checked any files that have the same name as any of the files in the Wordpress installation system will be overwritten.

  2. How can I make WordPress my start page?
    When WordPress is installed we install it in a sub folder. Installing it in a subfolder can eliminate the risk of other files already on the website becoming overwritten. There are an override checkbox that allows our autoinstaller to install the files directly on your websites root folder / and not in a subdirectory (use with caution as described below).

    If you check the override box ANY files that have the same name as the files containing the Wordpress files will be overwritten so take caution when checking the override checkbox if using our autoinstaller system. If you want to make a fresh re-installation of Wordpress you must delete all the tables in MySQL that Wordpress uses before the autoinstaller is used.

    If you already have a Wordpress installation and you want to move it to the root folder you can do this following the instructions below:

    To make Wordpress your default page you have to transfer the files via your FTP program to the root directory.

    1: Transfer all files including all subdirectories to your local machine
    2: Modify the wp-config.php file:

    Change:
    define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '/Wordpress3');

    to:

    define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '/');

    3: After the wp-config.php file has been modified then transfer the files including all subdirectories back to your website. The files must be transferred into the root folder / and not back into the subfolder where Wordpress was installed previously.

    It is not recommended that an existing Wordpress installation is moved from one location to the other. It is possible to do but require that a lot of database changes which we cannot provide support for via e-mail or on our online support system as it is individual for each website what has to be changed.

    The root folder is the top level of all your directories, /Wordpress3 is a subfolder, one level back is the root folder "/"

To delete the tables related to Wordpress you must tick all tables starting with w?_ and use the DROP menu item in the with selected select box. All tables related to your Wordpress blog will be deleted and your Wordpress blog can now be reused as a completely new blog.
