Log in to the Control Panel

Click Services > Dashboard in the SolVPS menu (if not logged in, log in here). On the Dashboard, select your web hosting service by clicking Manage Service.

For this example, we will install WordPress on our web hosting account. As you can see, there are many more applications you can install using the same method. There are over 400 software packages available.

Choose WordPress. Now you can configure the installation options for WordPress. Use the ? tooltips if you need help filling in the options. You can also leave the default values if unsure.

If you open the File Manager, you will see a new folder called blog that corresponds to the Directory we set in the installation step. This is where you will find the WordPress configuration files.
