    I have installed WordPress manually a number of times. It was when I was using a free web hosting and they did not allow the so called one click install feature. I never had much trouble uploading the files to the server. Instead of uploading the files one at a time through the built in file manage or FTP software I used to upload the ".zip" file which could be later decompressed on the server so I did not have to worry about a single file being misplaced or corrupted.

    Easy as pie. Open FTP client (I use Filezilla). Connect to server. Highlight WP files. Drag, drop, sit back and drink coffee. Job done. I must have done this about 200 times in the last few years, and there's never a problem.

    Of course, the cPanel bit where you set up the database and everything is a teeny bit more complex, but it's really not that hard. If you struggle with that, I'd go for the scripted install - the only real difference is that you get a database with a dumb name, instead of one you choose!

    Since you mentioned using Filezilla to copy all the files from your computer to the server. I have a question, when I tried to use Filezilla it would disconnect automatically from my server after a couple of minutes and I would have to reconnect it again to my server. How do I fix that ? How do I stay connected to my server longer ?

    I have installed Wordpress manually many times before. That's when I am setting up a site on a vps which does not have cPanel. It's not a complicated process. Wordpress has an installation file with which you can install Wordpress with just one click. If I remember rightly, they call it the 5-minute installation. The much easier way, of course, is just to use Softaculous. There are other installers but, so far from my own experience, Softaculous does the job better.

    @themonk3y, what you mentioned is quite odd. I have used Filezilla before and it doesn't disconnect while uploading files. Perhaps if you take a peek under the hood, so to say, and look at your settings you might see something about timeout or something similar.

    It's not that complicated, it's just a matter of following the steps properly and making sure everything is uploaded in the right place. However I would never do it manually if I have the choice of using the automatic installers, as Anderson5 said, time is money.

    Hello World !
    I will suggest to upload the .zip file and extract. If you have cPanel, then it's very easy otherwise upload through FTP but make it sure, you are uploading a zip file containing the wordpress files.

    If you don't have built in auto installer, then there is a website that will help you. installatron (.) com
    You have to choose installation directories and provide database credentials and it will install your script.

    Thanks,
