WordPress is arguably the most popular blogging software available today! It’s easy to install and will allow you to have a great looking, easy to use blog in minutes.

Version 3 allows you to choose to install a single blog or to have multiple WordPress blogs on a single website. Multiple blogs are more demanding on the administrator than a single blog so if you plan just a single blog choose that option.

1. Login to your control panel through www.extendcp.co.uk

2. Scroll down to CGI Scripts and click on WordPress Blog.

4. Click Install Now

5. After around a minute WordPress will be installed and when you go to the URL that you installed WordPress on you will be able to run through the initial configuration.

If the installation gave an error its most likely because the directory you tried to install in was not empty. If you still get stuck feel free to contact Switchweb support.
