Step 5

Choose Protocol- From the dropdown bar select the protocol that works best for your website. If you have an SSL certificate already installed on your site, change this to “https://”. In most cases, leaving it as “http://” is fine.

...

If you would like the WordPress installation in a subdirectory (example: http://mydomain.com/blog/), state which directory you would like it in. Softaculous will create the directory for you within the document root of your domain.

Step 6

...

(1), change the database name (2) if desired, change the prefix (3) to not have wp and end this in an under score, and check the boxes to Auto Upgrade, Auto Upgrade WordPress Plugins and Auto Upgrade WordPress Themes (4) unless you would prefer to do this manually through the WordPress Admin area or by using FTP.
