First select the domain that you want to install WordPress for in your SiteGround account.
Navigate to the Site Tools panel and go the WordPress option in the menu on the left. Here you need to click on the install and manage option.
Select regular WordPress website or WooCommerce webshop
Over at manage installations you can see there’s nothing there yet. You can see two different options to install WordPress.
The first option is for a regular WordPress website or blog. But if you want to create a webshop with WooCommerce than you can choose the second option.
In this case I’ll select the first option, but the following steps are the same for both options.
So, click on the select button to proceed.
Install WordPress with SiteGround settings
Here you can scroll down and change the language if you prefer that. By default, it’s set to English. Now enter a username and after that you can enter a password. Also add an e-mail address. You can select the WordPress starter plugin, but I’ll usually don’t do that.
Then click on install and then you will see WordPress will be loaded.
Log in WordPress dashboard
To log in into the WordPress dashboard you can click on this icon.
If you hover over it, you can see log in to admin panel being displayed.
Now a new window will open and then you will be logged in to the WordPress dashboard for your domain. So that’s how you can install WordPress with SiteGround.
