iPage 1 click install of WordPress with iPage
The easiest way to install WordPress on iPage is via their intuitive control panel vDeck, which does all the per-requisite work for you. To start, login to your vDeck control panel, and click on the “WordPress” icon inside the primary dashboard:

Once you’ve confirmed a few things, iPage does the rest for you, automatically setting up a mySQL user and creating the necessary mySQL database before installing WordPress.

The entire process takes less than a couple of minutes.
