Step 4 – Install WordPress

The last step is to put the data we created (user and database) into WordPress so that the databases can be installed and so that we can start using the site.To complete the installation, go to the domain (website) to which you transferred the WordPress installation files. On the website you will see the following screen and click on the continue button.At this point you will need to insert the database data we set up in step 3 into the WordPress installation. Enter the name of the database you created in the database. In the username, enter the user of the database you created and below, enter the password you set for that username. Once you have entered all the data, click the Submit button.If you get an error, it means that you entered incorrect data and you will have to repeat step 3 again. If you succeed in this step, you will see an installation activation button, click on it and the installation of the database will begin.The last part of the WordPress setup process is entering the details of the site and entering a user and password with which you can log in to the WordPress site you have installed. Enter the details and then you will be taken to the WordPress login page.
