Here is a quick tutorial on how you can install WordPress by means of uploading files via a FTP/SFTP connection. SFTP is recommended over FTP.
All you need is a FTP/SFTP client to connect and upload files to your server and then a browser to run the installation.
Open FileZilla (my favorite client) and connect to your webhost by specifying login credentials i.e. hostname, username & password
Browse to the location where you want to install WordPress. For example select blog if you want to install on blog.ashfame.com or select ashfame.com if you want to install it on www.ashfame.com
Extract it to a temp folder on your computer and then drag drop it on the selected folder view in Filezilla.
After all the files have been uploaded, open the URL in the browser and follow the instructions :
- Select Create a Configuration File
- Select Let’s Go
- Fill in the database connection details & click on Submit.
- Click Run the install.
- Fill in the Title, email and select the SE indexable option.
- It will give you your username (admin) and a random password.
Use this to login and change the password to something you can remember under your profile under Users option.
There are many other alternatives to install WordPress which are far better than this as manually uploading is a time consuming process. Feel free to ask your queries via comments.
