Main question: Is it necessary to upgrade to the Deluxe Package (from the Economy Package) with GoDaddy hosting in order for WordPress to work?
I have done everything imaginable. I have read the Codex several times, I have read through and tried everything in the "Go Daddy Fix" thread, as well as other threads with similar problems. All my information is correct, right down to replacing "localhost" with the provided mySQL host address. I also changed my platform over to Linux, thinking that was the problem.
I ended up just calling GoDaddy, and they said I would have to upgrade to the Deluxe Package since it allows CGI scripting (or something to that effect). But after reading through the forums here, it seems like most people have gotten the Economy package to work.
What would you recommend?
