  • Just create a directory blog inside public_html and then install wordpress inside blog directory or if you want to host blog on your main site then install wordpress inside public_html also you have to extract wordpress zip archive then copy all files inside wordpress folder.

I’ve tried ’em all and they don’t wanna work for some reason.

    I am using WordPress on my Personal Page blog at and have no problems with it, but I want to drop the blog format on my business page, but can’t figure out how to do it. I am not a developer.
