    Valerie, not all WP security experts agree that that is a particularly helpful strategy.

    By the looks of it.. If I used BlueHost.. I don’t need to use these steps do I?

    Did not work for me.

    Hi, I’m running into a bit of an issue around 3:42. I do not get a page that offers to configure wp. I get a page from my host with the name of my website and related links (because there is no content on my website.). Did I do something wrong? How can I fix this?

    If you are using regular FTP, DON’T!
    Use a more secure protocol like *SFTP* to encrypt your connection.

    Also, if your website doesn’t have HTTPS, then your admin password is being sent plaintext over the Internet.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! This was the first video that took me step b step and DID NOT matter what host or cPanel you had. Thanks for the simplicity. But what video is the next?

  9. Valerie Cudnik April 26, 2017 at 9:35 pm - Reply

    Good stuff… all the way until you left the default prefix as "wp_". As a security measure this should be changed to something else… anything else. Code injections depend on defaults.

    I’m on a mac and my wordpress is only accessible when MAMP severs are running. But the moment I close MAMP or click "stop servers" the wordpress is inaccessible. How do I change this? I want my wordpress to be accessible to the public when I’m off my computer (obviously). So confused please help!

    @WeTeachWP – Thanks for watching and thanks for the feedback. You are correct. Most security professionals are saying that It is of little value…if any.

    @erajuga thank you for watching! You are unable to perform installations to a cPanel demo site. You will need to purchase your own hosting account. To access cPanel on a domain you own, you typically just need to type in the URL associated with the account followed by /cpanel. If you need further assistance we have a whole community of people that would be happy to help you in our support forums listed in the video description.

    BTW, your menu has a typo. Skip to Insall, should be Skip to Install

    I’ve never seen a menu like that on a video… that’s AWESOME!

    Great video! I am stuck just at the end though.  I’m using Host Gator and accessed the file manager at the end to upload the WP files to the public html but I can’t seem to figure out how to do so. Also, I have a Go Daddy domain and website builder…. does that website builder need to be deleted so that WP will work?  Thanks!

    how do I get to this page @ 01:46? C Panel?

  28. Philipp April 26, 2017 at 9:57 pm - Reply

    it’s all based on the fact you are using Host Gator, So in case you don’t, tutorial is complete useless

    I think you should mention that users need to point their domain name to a server via their hosting company. This was an easy to follow tutorial but I couldn’t open my site until I changed the dns on my hosting account.

    How’d you get to cpanel? I’ve tried their demo but it kept saying "This feature is disabled in demo mode."

  36. WPMU DEV April 26, 2017 at 10:16 pm - Reply

    Fixed. Thank You.

    Can you develop using this method? I was thinking it was a local host.

    Wonderful tutorial! After I figured out where my public_html folder was everything else went smoothly. Thanks!

    @Valerie Cudnik – Thank you for providing some great security advice. While this is an excellent suggestion for locking down your backend, the idea of this video was to follow closely to the WordPress instructions for manual installation. We are looking at creating a video or two on building a "Bullet Proof" WordPress site and I will be sure and have this included in the conversation. Cheers!
