So you've just ordered your hosting account and you are looking to install Drupal - good you're in the right place. We make this easy with our build in 'application installer'.
Login to your cPanel account - the details for this will be in the welcome email.
Search for "Softaculous App Installer" - this will then load up the application installer suite.
Under the 'Top Scripts' section - choose "Drupal".
This will load an installation screen and give you a few options to configure how you want your site to be set up.
By default, it will install to the /drupal folder - so you would access it at http://domain.tld/drupal/ - for most users, this isn't what they will want.
To change this, you need to modify the 'In Directory' setting. Leave all other settings as default.
Once you are happy with the settings on this page, press 'Continue' and this will install Drupal for you.
Once you have installed Drupal, we would recommend securing it further using the "Securing Your Site" from the Drupal website which is found here: https://www.drupal.org/security/secure-configuration
If you require any assistance with the install, or securing your installation of Drupal, please contact our support team who can take care of this for you. Please raise a ticket here: https://www.zfast.co.uk/support
