    Hey guys, I'm with 'excess hosting' and in the software panel under softalicious there appears to be no wordpress. Is there a solution?

    You can set up wordpress manually, or contact host.

    Are you sure it's not there? My host uses softlicious too and wordpress is under blogs. AnyWay just do a manual install.

    1. Download it from Wordpress.org.

    2. Upload it to the public_html file on your host.

    3. If your host uses cpanel, make a new sql database, making sure all the permissions are checked for the database user (it guides you).

    4. Visit your website URL. It'll be an install page by default for the moment. Just fill in the information (database name, user name, password, etc.). Leave everything else alone usually, such as where it shows localhost and wp_ by default. Most hosts use localhost.

    Sorry for the lack of details. Just visit the wordpress installation FAQ located at the site I gave. It gives detailed instructions for manual installation. I recommend manual installation anyway, as it's good practice getting to know your file system and phpmyadmin.
