WP installed using SimpleScripts at hosting vendor (4 posts)

    I used SimpleScripts to install WP v3.4.1 and it seems to work. However, I want to add BuddyPress v1.6.1 and its install details say,

    WordPress should be installed manually i.e. via FTP, cpanel, etc. and NOT via webhost scripts (fantastico, softalicious, etc.)which bring about numerous issues when BuddyPress is activated.

    I'm working with my hosting vendor to sort things, but would prefer to press on and resolve the issues on my schedule not theirs. Can someone help me dig into the details and discover what is going on?

    Thanks in advance,

    Does anyone know about a test script that reports GO/no-GO for a WordPress Install on a hosted server?

    It seems that the various pre-install and post-install conditions would all lend themselves to script-based testing.

    Just a thought,

    Using those scripts can create problem. Most never changes the security salt keys, keeps the sample wp-config file intact. Please manually reinstall WordPress.

    You can check the latest WordPress checklist of requirements and you can test with a PHP script as I mentioned here : http://wordpress.org/support/topic/moved-to-new-vps-and-now-wordpress-site-doesnt-work?replies=15#post-3199455

    I understand what you want to say. A script that will give a Web Page on browser giving simple tick marks, understandable to all. If I do not find a ready made one, I will write one and post in WordPress somewhere (plus here). That is not very tough to write.

    Well, I was unable to find any ready made such script. So I created one for you - WordPress Compatibility Checking Script. I hope others might find it useful. It has simple tick mark kind of function. Anyone can interpret.
