How to auto install any wordpress version with hosting autoinstaller (10 posts)

    Anyone with hosting experience should please help me on this issue.
    I want someone to provide a reliable hosting website that support all wordpress version so that, when i want to install wordpress application with their Auto-installer within the Control Panel, i can install any version that i wish to use by clicking e.g 3.8.3.

  2. Hi,

    Generally hosts only provide either only a few versions back, but generally no more than 2 or 3 versions (e.g 3.9.1, 3.9.0) or they only have 1 version available and it is usually the most current version.

    If there is a host that offers the ability to install any WordPress version i haven't herd of it before sorry.

    The only way i know of to accomplish this task is by manually installing the WordPress version you wish by downloading the version you need from here http://wordpress.org/download/release-archive/

    Warning: Installing old versions of WordPress come with inherent security risks, new versions of WordPress are released to fix bugs and security issues that are discovered. Older versions of WordPress and their known security holes are more than likely well known by anyone wanting to do damage to insecure websites, To avoid any security issues you should always use the most current version of WordPress on a live production website website.

    Hope that helps :)

    Hi,
    Thanks for your responce. The version that I want to install is the 3.8.3 version. I have heard from many people that only by manual installation can this be possible since I am already on 3.9 version. I read about "Manual Installation Guide" from wordpress and some blogs but I can not go through the process.I think I am going to do a lot of research and contact some some hosting provider if they could provide 3.8.3 version or if they could do the manual installation for me as part of hosting package. Thanks once again

    You should look into auto-installers like Simple Scrips. They have multiple versions available to be installed with one click. Also, Softaculous offers multiple versions but not for WordPress unfortunately.
    BTW, installing WordPress is not as hard as it might seem. We can do it for you for free.

    Do you mean if I sign up for your hosting package, I will have my website running 3.8.3 version? If so, I will checkout your website and get back to you as soon as possible.

  6. great to see hosts in the WordPress help forums. im always looking for good hosts :)

  7. @2by2host? Please do not solicit people to contact you off of the forums. That is something that is actively discouraged.

  8. Sorry about that, I did sort of encouraged that response. I dont want to break rules but id also like to say It is good to see regular hosts in the WordPress forums, we need that level of support in the WordPress and open source community.

    and 2by2host wasnt really soliciting any contact, he was just letting me know i could contact him because they do specialise in WordPress - in my book that is helpful and has its place here.

    Thanks @2by2host and thank you Forum moderators for keeping this a great place :)

  9. It's all good and I'm not accusing anyone of any ill will. ;)

    But please, keep it all on the forums. As I've said that really is discouraged.
