2. Click that smiling Fantastico De Luxe icon. 3. Look for WordPress link in the right side menu. Click it.

Congratulations you’ve got a new website! You can now login to your WordPress dashboard and update it to it’s latest version. Some Thoughts One common drawback with using this method is that the WordPress version is often outdated. For example, while the current version is 3.6.1 (at the time I’m editing this tutorial) the version offered by Fantastico is still at 3.3.1. Well, you can update version through the WordPress dashboard after installation so no big deal anyway. Another drawback is that Fantastico automatically creates the database name, database username, and database password for you. The issue here is that the automatically created database info are often very easy to guess and may be prone to hack attacks (see image above with blue arrow). A database name with a username of josh159_wrdp1 are too easy to guess. You’ll be learning more about WordPress security on our advanced tutorials.
