Finally, enter the required fields for your site – title, description, administrative username and password, administrative e-mail etc. and click on the “Install”¬†button. Please note that by default¬†Softaculous will install the application in a “wp” sub-folder. That being said, if you would like to be able to access the website only via your domain name you should delete the wp string from the “Directory” field. If you want to install the application in another sub-folder you should simply type it in the field.
