Go into it and there you will find header.php. First back up the file by double clicking on header.php and then click on edit to edit it.
I do hope that you are using child theme so that if any mis coding is there then you can recover it. Currently I am talking about TwentyTwelve child theme of WordPress website. Search for <head> and immediately after it put the <head> code of Google Tag manager container script as high as possible and ut it just below
Then click save changes and then you will find the information success from cPanel and now the next step is to put the second part of code into body part of header.php file.
In the same header.php search for below code:
<body <?php body_class();
Then, immidately below it paste the second part of code exported from Google Tag Manager nd paste it as this is the body side of header part in Twenty Twelve theme and I do home most of theme does have same specifications to work on with it. Then run your website with web browser to see whether website is loading absolutely right or not and if it loads right this means placement of code inside header and body part of header of google tag manager becomes absolutely correct.
This is the difficult and most safe process. Alternatively you can install WordPress plugin such as DuracellTomi’s Google Tag Manager for WordPress and then only put the Google Tag number such as beginning with GTM and then you will find the ode and install it from there itself. Install it and then activate it and then, go to its SETTINGS.
To start with it first enter your GTM id or google tag manager ID.You will find it o your Google Tag Manager website. Save it and you are done. This is the easiest method and the alternative method which we are talking about but if you want to know how codes run easily then you can go for cPanel method described above.
Then now we can check whether the installation of Google Tag Manager script is correctly installed on website. Open web browser and then open your favorite web browser as now we install Google Chrome and then install Tag Assistant and then set it to check all scripts and then click on auto validation on and then refresh your website to see that, if you have followed each and every installation of google tag Manager script as both, process and choose either of it and then you will find that, these will show up in that chrome add on and in this way, you will find that whether you have additional code is there then remove from website root folder and then optimize your website for better loading and better data management processes.
