Support » Installing WordPress » Language options during installation?

  • Dear Team,

    I saw my friend chosing language when he was installing WP at a hosting company’s site. He showed me how easy this is, and the whole dashboard appeared in arabic as he showed.

    My question is, where is it available, or how can i do it at HostGator, I definitely want to avoid the PHP copying and other unfancy solutions.

    Where can I chose my desired language and just simply install that one????

    Thank you very much for your kind patience and advice in advance!
    have a great day all!!

  • WordPress is available in Arabic translation here

    Dear Charles,

    Thank you a lot!!

    To finish this project I just need to know what to do next? when Im at the Cpanel of hostgator, how should I attach my hostgator Cpanel to the downloaded and installed WP , the most easy way if possible.
    is there a shortcut or quickinstall for this also?

    thank you again

    If you install the english (main) version of WordPress. After the install is complete then download the new version from (there are files in wp-content/languages/ that you want to upload to your wp-contents folder. Then in your wp-config.php update the line to add ‘ar’.

    * اللغة الافتراضية المستخدمة في هذه النسخة هي العربية
    * إذا أردت أن تكون لوحة التحكم في مدونتك بالانجليزية قم بحذف الحرفين أدناه وهي الحروف ar
    define(‘WPLANG’, ‘ar’);

    After this the update button will update to the Arabic version every time there is a new WordPress.

    The English (main) version is not installed.
    So what if we are brand new?

    The use the instructions here: or on the site with the files downloaded from There is not a quick install for Arabic WordPress in Cpanel.

    The easiest method though if you are not confortable with database setup is to install in english then use the directions above to change to Arabic.
