Step – 4. Go to the URL of your website and set up WordPress
The Final Step!
Now we go the browser and type our domain/website name. In my case, my domain name is 'testing1.aetesting.xyz'. As a next step, you will be prompted with the below screen. Here, you will choose the language of your choice.
Now, WordPress will ask you to keep handy the details that you see in the screenshot below. Remember, we had noted down the database name, username, and password while creating the database? This is the place you'll use it.
Now, we enter the database name, username, and password. The host remains localhost in our case. Next, you get a prompt to run the installation on a successful connection to your database. Hit the button to begin the installation.
In the next screen, you will have to give your necessary details like site name, username, and email address. WordPress generates the password; you could keep it or change it. Whatever it is, make a note of your password.
Hurray! We have successfully installed and set up WordPress. You can now login to your WordPress site at your domain name, followed by ‘/wp-admin’. After logging in, this is how the admin dashboard looks like. To know all about the WordPress website, refer to our previous article on WordPress website basics.
And this is how our website looks like. WordPress gets installed with a default theme during installation, which we can change later.
