We selected English (United States). Then press Continue. It will bring you to a welcome screen like this.
Hit the “Let’s go” button.
In the next screen, you need to enter “root” as the username and the password you had chosen for MySQL / MariaDB earlier as the password in step 6.
Now hit the “Run the Installation” button. It will bring you to the site information screen. Fill up the title of your website, and create a username and password to log in to WordPress. You will also need to provide a valid email ID.
WordPress is now installed, but it can only be accessed within your home network.
