How do I install a One-Click Install?

This article covers the process of installing an application using the One-Click Installer in the panel.

To install a One-Click, your domain must first be 'Fully Hosted'.

Installing an application

To install an application from the One-Click Installs page:

  1. Navigate to the (Panel > ‘Goodies’ > ‘One-Click Installs’) page.
    The One-Click Installs page opens showing you a catalog of available applications:

    • The Application window displays details on the application such as current version and ratings.
  3. When you are ready to proceed with the install, select your desired domain from the ‘Install to’ dropdown menu.
    You also have the option to install the Application to a subdirectory or folder as shown in the following:

    • You have the option to use an existing database for this application or have the panel create a new one for you.

After you've installed WordPress in the panel

Once the application has successfully installed in the panel, you'll receive an email (to the primary email on your DreamHost account) with further setup details. This email contains the following information:

  • Login username and email
  • Unique URL to install WordPress into the website

Clicking the unique URL takes you to this page where you can change your password if you like:

new_WP_install

Click Reset Password. You can then log in at example.com/wp-login.php.
