  • Extract the downloaded file and go to the root folder and create a zip file in the WordPress folder

 

Project

  • Select MySQL and create a new database user
  • Save all the details in the notepad

  • Upload WordPress.zip from the upload archives section on the right
  • Once installed, open your website URL and then click on create configuration file and enter the database name,user,password and host and then click submit

    • You need to go the root folder of WordPress and then create a zip file. Did you check my video tutorial? Or download wordpress using this link http://bit.ly/TvJy5i and then upload it on 000 webhost.

      You have not extracted WordPress properly,(your wordpress install file is in the directory : hramjobs. in/wordpress-3.4.2/wordpress/) that’s the only mistake you have done.. Try to download using my link and then reinstall.

  4. Thanks for the tutorial.I have a free word press site hosted with 000webhost.It is a lovelyhosting service.
    But recently after the release of 3.5 version,i am not been able to update to this version.
    After we click the update option,it just stays with the message on the screen.”downloading——-zip.(just edited the path.)

    • Your welcome Villa, By the way please don’t upgrade to WP 3.5 as there are many bugs in it and most plugins are still not compatible
