We have already published various articles entitled How to install wordpress on different operating systems and control panels. But we have not provided any training on Windows hosts and installing wordpress on Windows hosts. In this article, we are going to provide you with a tutorial on installing wordpress on WebSitePanel.

The reason we suggest to use wordpress on a Linux host is that we suggest that you use a Linux host to install wordpress. Because they will be automatically synchronized with wordpress. Unlike Windows hosts, you will have many problems setting the access level, security, updating the PHP version, and so on. What if your hosting used the original Windows Server license for your site server!

Note that if your hosting control panel is the website panel, then you are using Windows hosting.

No problem. You can use wordpress on Windows hosts. But we suggest using Linux hosting with CPanel or Direct Admin. Sometimes your webmaster is more interested in WebSitePanel and you have to install wordpress on WebSitePanel.

How to install wordpress on WebSitePanel

Let’s start installing wordpress. Naturally, at the beginning of your career, you bought a Windows host with a panel website. The address of the control panel host is mihanwp.com:9001. Naturally, you should enter your website address instead of mihanwp.com.

You will see the login page for WebSitePanel. Here it is enough to enter the username and password that you received from your hosting company when purchasing the host.

You will then encounter such a page. Welcome to the WebSitePanel control panel. Where to manage your site (albeit with a little hassle). 🙂
