Automated Installation

Although WordPress is very easy to install, you can use one of the one-click auto-installers typically available from hosting companies. The most popular auto-installers, APS, Fantastico, Installatron, and Softaculous are described here.

APS (Plesk) APS (Plesk)

If you're using the Plesk control panel, you have two options: one-click quick install or custom install which allows you to configure things like installation path or database prefix. Both these options are available regardless of whether you have WordPress Toolkit enabled or not. However, special security measures are applied during installation only if WordPress Toolkit is enabled. If you don't have WordPress Toolkit, your WordPress installations will have the same security as manual WordPress installs.

  1. Log in to your Plesk account and go to Applications tab. The Featured Applications screen will open.
  2. Click Install next to WordPress if you want a one-click quick install, or click the drop-down arrow next to Install and click Custom if you want to change installation parameters.
  3. If you chose quick installation, no need to do anything else, as your WordPress blog has already been installed. If you chose custom installation, change the settings you want and click Install.
