    @jessro: It is impolite to interrupt another poster’s ongoing thread with a question of your own. It causes significant problems for the forum’s volunteers and prevents us from being able to track issues by topic. Please post your own topic.

    @mesau5: Try checking your site’s error logs for a more specific error message. Your hosts should be able to help you in accessing your site’s error logs.

    @mesau5 Where exactly did you upload wordpress files and folders as I am getting this

    The system cannot find the path specified.

    They need to be in root.

    @esmi: Thank you.
    @govpatel: Root folder, like usual (not my first manual wordpress installation). What I’ve found is that this website’s hosting is on IIS 6 at GoDaddy and that might be a reason…this is where it’s getting slightly too technical for me, but I’ve found that upgrading the hosting to IIS 7 might solve this. Here is the info page if anyone’s interested: http://support.godaddy.com/help/article/4138/upgrading-your-windows-hosting-account-to-iis-7
    I’ve hit the button upgrade, and now well, we have to wait as GoDaddy says it takes up to 24h to change this.

    I have would recommend that you ask Go Daddy to move the account on linux server instead of window server.

    @govpatel: thanks, seems that’s what we have to do!
