WordPress How to Make a Website with WordPress Installing WordPress 1 Click WordPress Install

Existing hosting account and a site

I have an existing hosting account and a site that I'd like to redo. Can I use that hosting account and the site space?

2 Answers

Absolutely. I use my own hosting/server space for all the code in whichever track I'm currently on. With the WordPress track, I'd just give the caveat that you may mess up your install while you're learning, but if you're okay with that possibility, go for it. (And really, recovering from a muck-up is part of the learning process! :))

Thank you for your answer. I actually went ahead and installed it in one of my folders and started creating the site 2 days ago. You're right about learning from the muck-ups :))
