Installing wordpress on our servers is definitely easy

First you will need to download Wordpress from their website, https://wordpress.org. You will receive a compressed file (.tar.gz or .zip) that you'll have to extract.

The files that you've extracted will need to be moved to your www-directory on your shell account. You can do this by copying them there using Filezilla or any other FTP client.

After you've copied those files to your www-directory, you'll have to go to your account on *your username here*.ulyssis.be. You will then receive a notification telling you your wp-config.php has to be created. The easiest way to do this is by following the wizard, so you can click on "Create a configuration file".

Go through to the wizard until it prompts you for your database credentials:

  • Database Name: If you haven't created a MySQL or PostgreSQL database/user on UCC, then you'll have to create it here. The default database is: "username_username".
  • Username: The name you used during the creation of your database account.
  • Password: The password you used during the creation of your database account.
  • Database Host: This is mysql.ulyssis.org
  • You don't need to change the last field.

After that you can proceed in the wizard where you can fill in some last few details. By then the wizard will do the rest and, congratulations, you have installed Wordpress.

Setting up multiple instances of Wordpress

If you want to have multiple instances of a Wordpress site then you the create a new folder in your homedir from your shell account. You need a new virtual host, send us an email and we will create one for you.

After your new virtual host has been configured, you need to do al the same steps as for a regular wordpress installation.

You could also use the Wordpress multisite option. You can find more help about the multisite option here.
