Go to 000webhost > members area > select your domain and click on go. Now the control panel opens up

Now search for Mysql there. Click on it and a new page opens up.

Now you have to create a data base here. Go to create new database

Eg

Enter a database name : a****_word

Enter a username : a****_word

Enter a password :

Retype the password

After you type these and click on create, a new page opens open saying database created and it will show you the details.

Step 3<>

Go to the folder on the desktop where you extracted wordpress.

Select the configsample.php file , right click and select edit it with notepad

Now scroll down and you’ll see something like these:

// ** MySQL settings – You can get this info from your web host ** //

/** The name of the database for WordPress */

define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘database_name_here’);

/** MySQL database username */

define(‘DB_USER’, ‘username_here’);

/** MySQL database password */

define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘password_here’);

/** MySQL hostname */

define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);

for the host name , enter the hostname provided by ooowebhost (not localhost)

save this file as config.php

Now, you’d need a FTP client , the free one is Filezilla.

Create a connection to your server by entering the FTP details

If you see default.php file delete it (very important)

Open public_html (root directory)

Now do not direct drag the folder containing wordpress here . open the folder to see its contents (wp-admin etc) select all items and then drag them into the root directory.

Step5<>

In your browser address bar type in the following address: http://yourdomain.com/wp-admin/install.php

If all the instructions were followed then you’ll see the wordpress setup page.

If not then u’ll get an error “error404.server……….”

Make sure you type the path correctly,

See that the config.php is edited properly

Make sure you have deleted default.php
