Just a note for others needing to install WordPress on a http://www.awardspace.com hosted system.
In using FTP, make sure you use passive mode when uploading files. In FileZilla this is under the Site Manager Advanced settings for a given site. Check the "use passive mode" radio button. I'm using version 2.2.18 of FileZilla.
This is NOT an endorsement of awardspace, just information to help others!
