So I have been trying to install wordpress onto a godaddy.com hosting site that I bought the day before yesterday. I have been having tons of problems with it. I’ve never done this before so I may be making a basic mistake
I followed the steps in the video tutorial that can be found at wordpress university (http://wordpressuniversity.com/installing-wordpress-on-a-godaddy-hosting-account/). It seems like everything installed to the hosting center in godaddy correctly. I installed to the root directory like the video says.
First thing I haven’t received a email from WordPress confirming that the set up was done and that there is an account activated. I’ve tried installing and uninstalling a few times to see if I had made a mistake and it still isn’t coming through. Right after the install I got when I go to the page (www.xlengthy.com) I was getting a message that said this site will be available soon. After I edited the wp-config.php file it was giving me an 500 internal server error.
I’ve called godaddy and asked them for help with the issue, they said to come ot the forum as they can’t do anything.
First how do I know what username to use in the wp-config.php file? I am using the log in name of the hosting control, and the database name is something like xle03809480404. I know that the password is correct cause I am only using one for this site to make sure I haven’t made any mistakes. When I did the auto install of wordpress through the connection center it didn’t tell me what database user to set up so I am assuming its the log in for the hosting center.
Secondly, how long are the emails supposed to take? The video said 20 minutes and I installed this last night, so it’s been 24 hours.
Any help will be super appreciated as I am at a complete loss right now.
