I recently activated personal web hosting and a custom domain through Sonic. I want to use Wordpress, but got an error message when trying to install via the one-click method in the member Tools/Websites/Website Add One. So I used FTP to install Wordpress (WP) 5 into nfs/WWW_pages/<myusername>. The WP install looks fine, but I need to edit the wp-config-sample.php file to direct towards the database.
It looks like I have the option to install a MySQL 5.5 database for $10 a month - is that the only option for personal hosting and WP?
