Upload Everything? (27 posts)

    Okay, maybe I'm just making things out to be more difficult than they seem, but the readme file when you get wordpress tells you at step four to "upload everything". Does this mean take every file that came with the installation, and put it into your webhosting server?

    Because while looking through all the files in all the folders, there are multiple index.php files, and obviously you can't have more than one. So......what's goin' on there?

    Sorry.. this must be incredibly n00bish.

    Thanks in advance,

    Emmy.

    Do you have 4 folders and several files when unzipped the downloaded .zip file? If not, try to unzip again and keeping the directory structure.

    Yes, there are four folders and multiple files without a folder.

    Do I upload the ones out of the folder and all the ones in seperate folders onto my webhosting server? If so, do I just put them all in different subdirectories?

    You should upload EVERYTHING as they are! Do you have FTP access and a ftp client?

    Yeah... but it's not like you can upload a folder. You have to upload the contents of the folder seperatly, and if I were to upload everything from every folder, it'd all be uploaded to one spot on my FTP, and that just wouldn't work.

    Which is why I'm asking, do I need to upload the things that aren't in a folder, and then the things that are in folders, but them in a SUBdirectory.....?

    In Filezilla, I can highlight all the folders / files then right-click and select Upload.

    How are you getting the files there ?

    What kind of FTP you have? YES, you can upload a folder with a "normal" ftp client. You just highlight all the files and folders and hit "upload". That's it.

    I'm using Yahoo as a webhost, FTP, MySQL, PHP - everything. And it doesn't allow folder uploading. But you have answered my question anyway. Considering you can't do the folder thing, it must mean that these files need to be kept seperate..

    Thanks for the help =3

    And it doesn't allow folder uploading
    It's hard to believe...
    And the answer is: the folder and file structure has to be EXACTLY the same as you have it on your computer.

    Can't you use FileZilla ?
    I'm amazed that yahoo won't let this happen... have you tried their tech support ? After all, WP is tiny compared to some apps. Codex is hosted by yahoo and compared to a WP install, it's massive.

    I have yahoo webhosting as well, I think emaleth was talking about the Yahoo Easy Upload Tool..you can only up load 20 files at a time(NOT whole Folders), and if you do it that way, you have to manually create folders and subfolders!

    Ahhhhhhhhhhh errors errors everywhereeeee!

    I changed it from localhost to mysql, which was all fine and dandy but of course:

    "Can’t select database
    We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the wordpress database."

    Crap.

    Ah :)

    Getting there - this means that it can see you, it can see the database, but it's not been told that the two go together.

    You need to add you to the database, or give yourself ALL permissions. This should be in the mysql interface part of the control panel you have.

    Umm.. I looked around but I can't really figure out how to give myself all permissions over my database. I sent them an e-mail asking for help but I doubt they'll respond anytime soon... @_@

    If anyone knows, please tell me how, else I shall keep on lookin.

    Resolved.

    yahoo has an extremely unfriendly control panel (if indeed it can be called that) and does not even provide phpmyadmin pre-installed.
