    Have things changed since my last install which was just last December 2012?
    I have purchased a new domain name to create a new website but I can't find the quick install for wordpress in the cPanel??

    Appreciate any help with this?

    Thanks. I have found a wordpress quick install now but when I log in the url it's showing as eg http://mywebsite.com/wordpress . Can I remove the wordpress part of the title as it's my domain name that I want not something that has wordpress in the url.
    When I try to alter the name via the settings/general then I can't seem to get back into the dashboard area!

    No need to move it, necessarily. Once it has been built in the /wordpress/ folder, you can keep that folder name from displaying as part of the url by following the instructions here:
    Giving WordPress Its Own Directory

    New domain name and new website = Create a new Add On Domain in cPanel.

    Set the nameservers where your domain name is registered to the nameservers of your current cPanel hosting account.

    Then create a new Add On Domain using the new domain name to point to the folder where you installed WP; frankly, I would rename it to something other than 'wordpress'.

    You will have to wait up to 48 hours or so for the nameserver change to propagate.

    I have 26 WP sites, 3 eFront sites and a Lime Survey site in my cPanel hosting account and all were easily set up in this manner.
