auto installs and updates fail site widel (8 posts)

    I have an idea of what the problem is, but what is the best way to fix or do a work around?

    My entire account with FastWebHosts is set up weird. Some is my fault, that I do admit.

    What I started with was one domain, cottom.org and added several more over the 12 years I've been doing this.

    My domain name is: cottom.org.
    under that I have five WordPress applications running. So, cottom.org/cottom.org/rgfg.org redirected to just http://www.rgfg.org. BUT by doing so none of the "automatic" updates will work because they are expecting a a different directory structure.

    I can find no place to download and install manually the various updates and themes. I could install them myself, if I could find them for manual download.

    Are your WP apps up to date? Or are some current and some not?

    And which themes?

    when I go this domain name http://cottom.org I see your index of folder and one them is rgfg.org when I click on that http://cottom.org/rgfg.org/ this the url in address bar and your wordpress opens.

    I would like know what your root folder is?

    I have an Apache base UNIX web server.
    Each of the six web sites, each a Word Press install , has their own registered domain names.
    The directory structure right now is as follows:

    Home/public_html/cottom.org/index.html (cottom.org only has a index.html menu page)
    2nd under public_html is /rgfg.org
    3rd under public_htm/ is /rgfg.org
    4th under public_html is /wabashchaplain.org
    5th under public_html is /terretown.net
    6th under public_html is /wabashtractor.com

    All the sites works OK, execpt for the auto update/downloads.

    Are you sure as from the url I see that you have cottom.org in public_html and you have rgfg.org in cottom.org

    so on top you will see Home/public_html/cottom.org/rgfg.org

    Matter of fact you should have the index.html that in cottom.org in public_html as cottom.org is your primary domain name
    then have rgfg.org in public_html and same for rest.

    set your addon domain names to point respective folder

    You can update manually using ftp replace all files and folders except
    wp-content folder and wp-config.php from a fresh download.

    and run http://domainame/wp-admin/upgrade.php

    Ya all,
    Thanks for the help. It still won't auto upgrade, so I'll do as I have always did. If I can't get over the mountain, I'll go around it, and if I can get around it or under it I will tell it be removed and cast into the sea. (Mark 11:23~24).
