    I’m trying to install WP on GoDaddy and I’m getting and error when I run config.php

    Warning: require_once(/home/content/44/8521944/html/wp-admin/wp-settings.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/44/8521944/html/wp-admin/wp-config.php on line 91

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/content/44/8521944/html/wp-admin/wp-settings.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php’) in /home/content/44/8521944/html/wp-admin/wp-config.php on line 91

    The GoDaddy server info is as follows:
    OS/Hosting Type: Linux / 4GH Web Hosting
    Hosting Configuration: 2.2
    PHP Version: PHP 5.2
    Data Center: US Regional
    Absolute Hosting Path: /home/content/44/8521944/html

    The only thing that jumps out at me here is the “php5” in the include_path and the fact the the server is running php 5.2 but I don’t expect that the path or php version is hard-coded so I have some doubts that the 5.2 php version is really an issue.

    Anyone have any insight into this? I got WP up and running on bluehost in about 20 minutes. I’ve been jumping through GoDaddy’s hoops for 3 days now and all I have left is to make it through the last function call in config.php so I can move on with my life… 🙂

  • the error shows the wp-config.php is in the wrong folder
    /html/wp-admin/wp-config.php on line 91
    it needs to be moved to the root where the readme.txt resides

    Heh… I’m a big fat idiot. 🙂 I had to make a change to config.php and confused it with install.php when I uploaded it. It’s all good now. Thanks for shaking me out of my stupor.
