Blog Installation Using the BackupBuddy Plugin

Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how to install PreMadeNiches PLR blogs on your server with the new cPanel interface and the latest BackupBuddy plugin (version 8.0). The whole process is actually very simple and easy to do and can be done in less than 10 minutes.

The installation process is divided into 3 parts:
Part 1: Upload Installation Files
Part 2: Create MySQL Database
Part 3: Run the Installation Script

This method is good for:

  1. Blank domain name, meaning no WordPress site installed.
  2. Webhosts that use cPanel and allow MySQL creation
  3. Technically inclined webmasters

For this guide, it is assumed that you already have a Web host account that uses cPanel as a control panel. Also, it is assumed you have your own domain name ready.

Make sure your domain name is pointed to your webhost. Here’s a quick guide on how to configure your domain’s DNS: How to Point a Domain to Your Webhost

If you are installing this blog on an AddonDomain or to a subdomain, make sure that addon domain or subdomain is working. For beginner’s read this guide: How to Add a Domain or Subdomain

WARNING: DO NOT install WordPress on the destination server. The importbuddy script will install all files, including WordPress. It is therefore advised that you delete any existing WordPress files to avoid installation conflicts.

NOTE: If you happen to have WordPress installed already or simply wanted to replace an old site, please see this guide instead: Blog Installation Using the All-in-One WP Migration Plugin

Part 1. Upload Installation Files

1. On your computer, unzip the blog package you downloaded when you purchased it from
You may use WinZip or WinRAR. Free WinZip version is usually pre-installed on most Windows-based computers.


2. After unzipping, open the folder “Files To Upload“. This is where the actual “installation files” are placed.


The “Files to Upload” folder contains 3 files: index.php, importbuddy.php, and the “backup file“. The backup file is usually in a “” filename format so in this demo it is ““.

You’re going to upload all 3 files. DO NOT unzip the backup file.

3. Login to your cPanel using this url format:
Feel free to use your favorite FTP software but for this demo, we’ll use the built-in cPanel uploader.


The url login address:

login to cPanel

The login box:

Note: Make sure your domain’s DNS is already pointed to your webhost for this setup to work properly.

4. Once logged in to your cPanel dashboard find the “File Manager” icon. Click it.
5. On the new window, you now see the File Manager Page.
6. On the left panel click public_html.
7. After clicking, you’ll see a blank canvass on the right panel.


NOTE: If this is a newly purchased webhost, it’s normal to see some extra html and CSS files automatically included by the host. Delete those extra files.

8. Click the “Upload” tool located on the top menu of the cPanel File Manager.
9. On the new window, click “Select File“.
Navigate to where the “Files to Upload” folder is located on your computer then select the 3 files one by one.


Or simply drag and drop the 3 installation files from your computer.

10. Wait for files to get uploaded. While waiting proceed to Part 2 MySQL creation.

Part 2: Create MySQL Database

1. Go back to your cPanel homepage.
2. Find “MySQL® Database Wizard” under Databases box.
3. Click the “ MySQL® Database Wizard” link. You will be redirected to the MySQL® Database Wizard page.
4. Open the “Installation Notes” file included with the blog package you downloaded.


Use the installation notes to record your database info as you create your MySQL. You will be using this info when running the installation script on Part 3 below.

5. Now, enter your desired database name then click “Next Step” button.


Tip 1: Your database name should be something that will help you recognize from other databases especially if you have already created several or planning to create more databases on your webhost account.

Now that we’ve already created a database name, our installation note should be:

Importbuddy password: premadeniches195
Install URL:
Db Name: pms8gr07_mynewblog98475
Db Username:
Db Password:

IMPORTANT! Always include your cPanel login username followed by underscore (_) when writing down your database name and username.

My cPanel login username in this demo is pms8gr07. So my full database name is this:

pms8gr07 + _ + mynewblog98475 = pms8gr07_mynewblog98475

Some hosts, however, like GoDaddy don’t require cPanel username prefix so your database name would be just mynewblog98475 without the pms8gr07_ prefix.

6. On Step 2, enter your desired database username. Up to 7 characters is allowed but some webhosts will require 8 or more.
Mine here is boom123
7. Click the “Password Generator” button. A password generator box will appear.
Click Generate Password button to create a new database password.


8. Copy your generated password into your installation notes. Copy also your database username.
Now, your final installation note should look like this one:
Importbuddy password: premadeniches195
Install URL:
Db Name: pms8gr07_mynewblog98475
Db Username: pms8gr07_boom123
Db Password: BGDVIop}a+MW
9. On the Password Generator box, check “I have copied this password in a safe place.” then click “Use Password” button.
10. Next, click “Create User” button.
11. On the next step (Step 3: Add user to the database.), check “ALL PRIVILEGES” tick box.
This will automatically check all other tick boxes under it.


12. Scroll down then click “Next Step” button.
13. That’s it. MySQL creation done!

Part 3. Run Installation Script

1. Open the “Installation Notes” you created in Part 2 (MySQL creation).
2. On your favorite browser, copy the installation URL to the address bar then hit “Enter” key on your computer keyboard.
3. Enter Importbuddy password then click Authenticate button.


NOTE: The importbuddy password is already included with the “Installation Notes” file.

4. Now, on “Step 1: Select Backup to Restore“, click “Restore Backup” button.
5. Next, on “Step 3: Database Settings“, manually enter your database settings.
For “Database Server” and “Database Prefix” just click the arrow to copy setting from old server to new server.


So from:

To this:

For Database Name, Database User, and Database Password just copy and paste the info from the notepad list you created in Part 2 (MySQL creation).

6. Click “Next Step” button.
7. On “Step 5: Site URL Settings“, review your new URL (WordPress address) then simply click “Next Step” button.
8. On “Step 6: Verify Site and Finish“, click your blog url and check if site is working.
9. If site is working with no error/s, click “Finish Cleanup” to delete installation files and other mess.
10. That’s it. Congratulations for successfully installing your new blog/site.
