In an earlier post I explained why you should re-consider setting up WordPress with Yahoo Web Hosting. However if you choose to do so here is a step by step guide:
First visit smallbusiness.yahoo/webhosting:source=geocities and Choose your plan.
You can then choose to register a domain with Yahoo or use one you already own:
Before paying for Yahoo web hosting and perhaps a domain you will need to signup with Yahoo Aabaco Small Business:
After you have completed the signup process, verified your email, added your details and you’ve received the getting started email you should end up back on the Yahoo web hosting home page where you can access your account.
Click “Access Your Account” to access the web hosting control panel
Click on the Create & Update Tab
Scroll down and click on WordPress just under Blog Tools:
Here you will see the form you need to complete in order to install wordpress:
Step 1. Add in login information, password, and Email you want to use with this site.
Step 2. Select the checkmark “Make my blog my homepage” to install your WordPress site on your homepage and for your entire site.
Step 3. Next choose “Install in this default directory…”. As yahoo does not allow you to install WordPress on your root directory, you must select a directory name or a pre-existing directly in which to install WordPress. It will still install your blog on your homepage.
Step 4. Accept the license agreement and then click Activate
WordPress should now be successfully Installed!
Select “Edit Blog settings” to access your WordPress dash board where you need to enter the Username and Password you just created.
Or alternatively Select “Add a post” to add a post or “View your blog” to view your blog
