The main reason to install WordPress in your own server because you can modify the source code, use your own domain name, and add Google Adsense. The installation is very simple, just make sure that you have Linux Hosting package, not Microsoft’s. If you do have Microsoft package, you can switch it to Linux Hosting just a single click. Use Switch Package under Administration in 1&1 Control Panel. It will take 24 to 48 hrs… PLEASE BACKUP ALL YOUR FILES FIRST!!

Assuming that you have Linux Hosting package, which includes PHP scripts support and MySQL Database…

  • Create a database by clicking MySQL Administration in 1&1 Control Panel; Click New Database, MySQL will generate a database with a username, password, and host name that CANNOT be modified.
