First, let me start by saying I know nothing about PHP, MySQL, etc. If at any point during this post you feel like saying, "Dude, you might just be better off going and using Blogger...", I won't be offended. :-)
Second, sorry if I'm posting something that has already been covered. It's just that I've read through all of these posts about GoDaddy installation, tried all of the suggestions, and nothing seems to work.
- I created my database on GoDaddy--database is "active".
- I unzipped the WordPress download, edited the wp-config-sample.php and filled in the database connection details (see below), and saved the file as wp-config.php.
- I uploaded everything to http://www.sevven.com/blogs/wp/.
Now, http://www.sevven.com/blogs/wp/wp-admin/install.php will not launch. I get a "page not found" error in IE.
/** WordPress's config file **/
/** http://wordpress.org/ **/
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define('DB_NAME', 'sevvenadmin'); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'sevvenadmin'); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', '********'); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST', 'mysql35.secureserver.net'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
// Change the prefix if you want to have multiple blogs in a single database.
$table_prefix = 'blogs_'; // example: 'wp_' or 'b2' or 'mylogin_'
// Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the
// chosen language must be installed to wp-includes/languages.
// For example, install de.mo to wp-includes/languages and set WPLANG to 'de'
// to enable German language support.
define ('WPLANG', '');
/* Stop editing */
$server = DB_HOST;
$loginsql = DB_USER;
$passsql = DB_PASSWORD;
$base = DB_NAME;
// Get everything else
Any thoughts? Thanks!
