Setting up WPengine

There isn’t a whole lot say here. Once WPengine sends you an email saying your site is ready you should be able follow the instructions and log into both your own site and also your Wpengine account, which is where you manage a couple things server side. When I say “manage” that’s overstating what you really do there. One of the reasons we’re using WPengine is because all the management is taken care of for you. The one thing you’ll need to do on the WPengine account page is tell it which domain name you purchased. We go through that in the next step.
