How to Install WordPress on FatCow Web Host

  1. Login to the Control Panel
  2. In the Website Section, Click WordPress
  3.                              2
    • You’ll be taken to the MOJO Marketplace.  This is perfectly normal, don’t panic.
  4. Click Install
  5.                             3
  6. Select which domain you would like to install to: Choose domains without www.
  7.                             6
    • I prefer to download the installation here and point the www part to the same site later.  That way if someone goes to or, they come to the same place.
  8. Click Check Domain
  9.                              7
    • Even if this is your first time here, you more than likely still have files pre-installed on this path by FatCow.  Probably for security reasons, I’m just taking a guess.
  10. Click Continue
  11. Check Show advanced options
  12. Site Name or Title – put what you want your site to be called. Example: Tris’ Tattoos.
  13.                                8
  14. Admin Username – I like to change it from the default email to the company name.
  15.                                 9
  16. Check Automatically create a new database for this installation.
  17.                                   10
  18. Save the Site Name, Admin Username, and Password in a place where you can find them later if you need them.
    • If you ever forget, you can come back to your Mojo Marketplace account and find your login information again by clicking the link below.

    • Of course that’s what I always click, I’ll explain more in a bit, but for now, just know that you can come back and browse these themes anytime.  Best not to get sidetracked.
