Welcome to Ben’s Experience! In this guide, I will show you how to reinstall WordPress on Hostinger. Whether you’re troubleshooting issues or simply starting fresh, reinstalling WordPress can be a straightforward process when you follow the right steps. Let’s dive in!

Reinstalling WordPress from the WordPress Dashboard

The first method to reinstall WordPress is through the WordPress dashboard:

  1. Log in to Your Dashboard:
    • Go to your website’s login page by typing yourwebsite.com/wp-login.
    • Enter your username and password to access the WordPress dashboard.
  2. Navigate to Updates:
    • Once logged in, find the “Updates” section under the dashboard.
    • Here, you’ll see an option to “Reinstall Now” if you already have the latest version of WordPress installed.
    • Click “Reinstall Now” and wait for the process to complete. WordPress will download and reinstall the latest version automatically.

This method is quick and ensures that you have a fresh copy of WordPress installed without affecting your existing content.
