Thanks but i say i dont have own server, i have classic hosting. (no cloud,)
I thought the installation would take place in the way that I just take the files and drag them to ftp and install.

I can not do more, in which case it is not for me. But the forum looks very nice.

So rent a VPS. Very cheap and easy these days. So much choice.
