    I am absolutely noobish at this. I have downloaded wordpress, unzipped it, but could someone please tell me where I can put my files on 000webhost? I've never done ftp before. Is there anyway i could just upload the zip to my directory? If so, which folder do I put that zip into?

    There should be a folder called htdocs. Put everything in there that you unzipped. Don't forget to edit the config file, the Wordpress site has a tutorial. You also need to create a MySQL DB.

    Download and unzip the WordPress package, if you haven't already.
    Create a database for WordPress on your web server, as well as a MySQL user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.
    Rename the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php.
    Open wp-config.php in your favorite text editor and fill in your database details.
    Place the WordPress files in the desired location on your web server:
    If you want to integrate WordPress into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/), move or upload all contents of the unzipped WordPress directory (but excluding the directory itself) into the root directory of your web server.
    If you want to have your WordPress installation in its own subdirectory on your web site (e.g. http://example.com/blog/), rename the directory wordpress to the name you'd like the subdirectory to have and move or upload it to your web server. For example if you want the WordPress installation in a subdirectory called "blog", you should rename the directory called "wordpress" to "blog" and upload it to the root directory of your web server.


    Run the WordPress installation script by accessing wp-admin/install.php in your favorite web browser.
    If you installed WordPress in the root directory, you should visit: http://example.com/wp-admin/install.php
    If you installed WordPress in its own subdirectory called blog, for example, you should visit: http://example.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php

    viva is right. I believe that 000webhost may also have a 1 click install for wordpress in their Cpanel

    ^ hehe. You know, i would do it the hard way just go ahead and get an updated version.
    But if you really never done this before use the fantastico and update later.

    Thanks, and yeah, it's pretty common for hosts to include 1 click installs for wordpress, and other useful apps.

    thanks all.... lol omg, yeah i found the 1 click install just then, then saw you guys posted about it here... I blame this idiocy on me being blonde... Bloody hell >.< Ok, so anyone wanna guide me on how to use the mouse to do 1 click?! /facepalm

    at least you arent as idiotic as me viva >.<

    oh and simplybebop, you seem to be negative in quite a few posts, and seem to have a love affair with dots. Wanna hug? :>

    I spent $10 on domain masking, when all i needed to do was go to 000webhost and install... wow lol. I may aswell have shoved it down the loo.

    ha sure, slide the cursor in the screen the the WP icon then left click on it haha. Anyway glad you got it figured out man, I was a little surprised you didnt know how to do WP installs anyway. You should try doing it yourself sometime instead of the 1 click install, its not bad info to know.

    and also be sure to update the .htacess later, sometimes the plugins or the automatic updater can be buggy

    Code:
    RewriteBase /
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
