Installing from x10 (2 posts)

    I am using x10 hosting. I have done the installation process probably about 15 times seeing if I can do something different to make it work. After I install the updated version in cpanel, I can't get anywhere else. I want to be able to install third party themes, but I keep failing in what I think is step 5 of the installation process, the "run the script," because nothing happens. I have rechecked over and over to make sure mySQL is setup and concurs with the config file. Please help. I'm ready to give up.

    Hi mipeacock,

    I'm sorry to hear you're having issues installing WordPress. Since you're using cPanel, it's likely that your web host offers easy installation through Fantastico De Luxe (or a similar installer script). Here are easy to follow instructions for installing WordPress through Fantastico in cPanel:

    Note, when using an installer script such as Fantastico, the instructions are not quite the same as the famous 5-minute installation. When using an installer script, you shouldn't need to run the WordPress installation script by accessing wp-admin/install.php as that should be taken care of by the installer script within cPanel.

    I hope this helps!
