Softaculous - now need wordpress login? (5 posts)

    Hello,

    I really need some help - I've inherited a website and wanted to try and rebuild it in wordpress.

    I was told if I used something called softaculous it would allow me to download wordpress (which it has) but I never had to enter any login details so now I don't know how to get to my wordpress dashboard to edit my wordpress within it.

    Please help me - I'm very new to this and not technical!

    You do not need softaculous to install or use WordPress. See http://wordpress.org/download/

    Thank you, but I wanted to add it to the self-hosted site I have inherited.

    I have managed to log in now, and during set up I set it so that it was http://www.choreographiclab.org/cl but I will eventually want it to take over the site that is already there - becoming http://www.choreographiclab.org (no /cl) does anyone know how I do this?

    Hi,

    Softaculous will always ask you to enter the installation details.
    It will also email you the admin details.

    Regards,
    Softaculous Team
