How do I use a registered domain name from hostgator on Wordpress? Im having troubles installing wordpress ; I would download the program, unzip it and click on install under "admin" but it brings up weird error codes in my my firefox browser...


Wordpress does have recommended hosts that install it automatically, but im already with host gator.

    Go into the Cpanel of your domain account at HostGator. Then, look at the bottom for Fantastico.

    When that opens, on the left side look for Blogs - Wordpress. It's a quick and easy install.

    HostGator has some wonderful video tutorials. Here's the one you need:

      Actually, there is no need to re-invent the wheel... just learn where to read the instructions:
      Installing WordPress « WordPress Codex

      (the WP Codex is one of the best maintained online manual...)
