    Hello,

    It looks like they use cPanel as there control panel, so in cpanel look for WordPress Install, or look for a script installer like:

    Installatron
    Softaculous
    Fantastico

    Regards,
    Adam

    If the script installer route fails, WordPress is dead simple to install. All you need is FTP access. Full details are here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    Hello,

    In your WordPress Admin Panel you will get a notifications of updates when you login.

    Usually on the Dashboard

    As you installed this via Softaculous you should be fine with upgrades, they will notify you and if enabled, take care of the upgrade for you.

    WordPress can easily be upgraded in the admin area though.

    OP, I am glad that you got this installed.

    If I can make a recommendation, look into installing a wordpress plugin such as "bullet proof security". This will help provide basic protection against attacks. There are other things you can do to make your site more secure, but you can learn more about that later. For now, that plugin should provide the bare minimum protection you need.

    Don't use bullet proof security unless you understand how the .htaccess file works. You'll end up getting rewrite errors when installing plugins if you simply follow the instructions given by bullet proof security without understanding what it is you're doing.
