You need to configure and set up your server.
You don’t have as much freedom compared to when you do your local setup, but nowadays, even the cheapest shared hosting offers packages with a lot of the required features already included.
Here is what you need to be able to complete the steps below.
SiteGround has all the items below covered, but you need to double-check with your system administrator if you are using another hosting provider.
- SSL Support.
- Be able to add/import SSH public and private keys (you need SSH access).
- You need to have Git installed without any limitations.
- You need to add an IP Address and access your MySQL database from a remote host (in our case, from our local machine).
Before we go any deeper, you can use the SiteGroud automated step-by-step guide and create your first fresh WordPress install in just a couple of minutes.
