WordPress via SFTP
A step by step guide
Step 1: Download WordPress
Step 2: Change wp-config.php
- On the line define('DB_NAME', 'database_name_here'), insert the name of your MySQL5 database.
- On the line define('DB_USER', 'username_here'), add the database user name.
- On the line define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password_here'), insert the database password.
- In the line define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'), enter 'db12345678.hosting-data.io' instead of the default value with a 1&1 IONOS webhosting package. For a 1&1 IONOS managed server, use the following value: 'localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock'.
Step 3: Upload folder content
Step 4: Finish installation
Install WordPress locally
XAMPP and MAMP
For even greater peace of mind, 1&1 IONOS offers SSL certificates at a low cost. In addition to the measures described above for securing your WordPress installation, you can also secure the exchange of data between your site and those visiting it when using an SSL certificate. Instead of the unsecured HTTP channel, the communication now takes place via a secure HTTPS connection. You can purchase an SSL certificate with one of our web hosting offers (Linux or Windows).
To reinstall WordPress manually you will need to download the WordPress file from the official website. Unzip this file onto the server where WordPress is hosted and deactivate your plugins. Access your installation directory through SFTP and delete the wp-includes and wp-admin directories. Next, copy/paste the new versions of these directories from the unzipped file to replace the ones you have deleted. Now copy the files within the wp-content directory from your download and overwrite those that are on your server - do not delete any other files. Finally, copy any loose files from the download into your root directory and your reinstallation of WordPress is finished.
