The second thing you will need to do is download the PixelPost script. You can do this from their official website at:

http://www.pixelpost.org/

Once you have downloaded the archive, upload the archive content in your hosting account. If you want to access your website using https://yourdomain.com upload the files in the /public_html/ directory of your account. If you prefer to access the site using https://yourdomain.com/blog/ you should upload the files in /public_html/blog/ . You can easily upload the files using FTP client. You can find our FTP video tutorials here:

In our case we have uploaded the files in the public_html directory. To start the install process go to:

https://yourdomain.com/admin/install.php
