In this step we need to specify the definition of the website.

“Domain”: enter your domain name.

“Harddisk Quota” enter the value according to the plan you have purchased, if unsure just leave it to -1, once you save it you will receive an error with the max quota assigned to you.

“Traffic Quota” enter the value according to the plan you have purchased, if unsure just leave it to -1, once you save it you will receive an error with the max quota assigned to you.

“Auto Subdomain” set it to www, we will create a redirect rule afterwards to improve search engine.

“Web server config” select the predefined wp config, this is required for correct permalinks setup.

Leave the other fields at their default settings and press “Save”.

Now that we have the website defined we need to install WordPress.

Inside the left sidebar you will find a section “APS Installer” and “Available Packages” menu as shown in the image, click on the “Available Packages” menu.

In this screen you have listed all the available packages for installation, search for WordPress and select it when found as shown in the image.

The details of this package are shown now, you should be able to see different information for this package including installation size, version and description of the package.
