[resolved] Installing WP at host Network Solutions (7 posts)

    Hi. I think I've come to step 4 in the detailed instructions. I'm told to upload the directory to the "root directory" at my host (Network Solutions). None of the two (default?) folders there are named "root directory", but "cgi-bin" and "htdocs". Which (if any) of these two folders are to be considered "root"?

    Also; I've downloaded a template (atahualpa). I haven't customized it and don't know exactly how to proceed; any advice?

  2. None of the two (default?) folders there are named "root directory", but "cgi-bin" and "htdocs". Which (if any) of these two folders are to be considered "root"?

    The name of the web root directory varies depending on the hosting provider. In this case, it's probably /htdocs/

    Also; I've downloaded a template (atahualpa). I haven't customized it and don't know exactly how to proceed; any advice?

    Install it from the Appearance section of the admin panel after you've installed WordPress.

    Thanks for reply! I tried to drag and drop the wordpress directory to the htdocs-folder at NS, but all that resulted was a page with weird code that included links which don't work. I think I've done the config-file correctly, so what might be wrong?

    The following is the "weird code", is it intelligible?:

    cache_enabled = false; do_action("activate_header"); function do_activate_header() { do_action("activate_wp_head"); } add_action( 'wp_head', 'do_activate_header' ); function wpmu_activate_stylesheet() { ?>

    get_error_code() || 'blog_taken' == $result->get_error_code() ) { $signup = $result->get_error_data(); ?>
    '; if ( $signup->domain . $signup->path == '' ) { printf( __('Your account has been activated. You may now login to the site using your chosen username of ā€œ%2$sā€. Please check your email inbox at %3$s for your password and login instructions. If you do not receive an email, please check your junk or spam folder. If you still do not receive an email within an hour, you can reset your password.'), network_site_url( 'wp-login.php', 'login' ), $signup->user_login, $signup->user_email, network_site_url( 'wp-login.php?action=lostpassword', 'login' ) ); } else { printf( __('Your site at %2$s is active. You may now log in to your site using your chosen username of ā€œ%3$sā€. Please check your email inbox at %4$s for your password and login instructions. If you do not receive an email, please check your junk or spam folder. If you still do not receive an email within an hour, you can reset your password.'), 'http://' . $signup->domain, $signup->domain, $signup->user_login, $signup->user_email, network_site_url( 'wp-login.php?action=lostpassword' ) ); } echo '

    '; } else { ?>
    '.$result->get_error_message().'

    '; } } else { extract($result); $url = get_blogaddress_by_id( (int) $blog_id); $user = new WP_User( (int) $user_id); ?>

    user_login ?>

    View your site or Login'), $url, $url . 'wp-login.php' ); ?>

    Login or go back to the homepage.' ), network_site_url('wp-login.php', 'login'), network_home_url() ); ?>

    Have now established emailbox, but no instructions have materialized yet. Guess I'll wait a few hours, maybe something's processing.

  5. Try uploading the files again, but make sure that your FTP client is set to upload files as ASCII and not binary.
