In order to manually install and configure WordPress on your current web host you must first go to WordPress.org and download WordPress directly. This will ensure that you always have the latest version to work with.
Don’t make the mistake of going to WordPress.com. That is WordPress’s free, hosted version that serves a whole different purpose.
Download WordPress by clicking on the download link, or right clicking and Save As. Save the file to your hard drive and extract it with an unzipping utility like Winzip, or the free, and excellent, 7-Zip.
