    let me know how this turns out

    actually it looks like php is not enabled on the server

    your right, he wouldnt have gotten a error if this caliber if it had PHP enabled

    also is this a local install or a remote
    are you hosting it or do you pay someone to host it

    Now let me first start out by saying, I am new to all of this. Second I did not change any E-mail, then I am paying for hosting. I use Yahoo Web hosting. Does that help?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for your help




    reupload the files, using a real FTP client.

    to test my theory, reupload just this file:



    Make sure you are using a real FTP client, NOT dreamweaver, and that you are uploading the file in ascii mode.

    okay, i am trying a FTP client with Freezilla? then what is ascii mode?

    It does not start the install (program) on my site. It comes with an error: The site is not found. Everything in the previous steps is OK.

    I have made a mistake. Everything in the provious steps is OK isn’t in the error message.
