Step-1 – Upload wordpress Via cpanel file manager.

Open File Manager
If a message like the one shown below appears, select the Web root directory. We assume that you have one domain linked to your hosting account.
Step-1.1 – Upload, Extract and Move

- Now we’ll upload the wordpress.zip file inside public_html/
Once the upload is complete, close the tab and return to the File Manager. If you still don’t see a file in the directory, click on Reload button. You should see the wordpress.zip file now.
Step-1.2 – Extract the Archive
Now, select the file and click on Extract.
Once the extraction is complete, again click on the Reload button. You should see a folder called wordpress.
Move the Contents of the Extracted Archive
we must move the contents of the wordpress folder back to the parent (public_html/) directory. To do this, we can either use FTP or cPanel.
Step 2- WordPress Final Configuration
