  • Resolved Myword


    For more than one week now everyday I have been having difficulties installing wordpress on my ISP server. After many back and forths with my ISP we have concluded that I need to delete the database tables.

    I changed the prefix in wp-config.php this did not work.

    I downloaded phpMyAdmin and attemped configuration and installation.

    With both applications I consitently recieve “file not found errors”

    I don’t know what to do, am wasting a lot of valuable time, I work alone and I need to get blogging in support of business objectives. I would be grateful if someone would be kind enough to work with me to get both configuration files sorted out and stand with me through out the setup process so I could close the book on this horrible experienc.

  • If you wish, how about I just try to install it ?
    It’s a one-off process, doesn’t need repeating so there’s not a whole lot to learn. Once it is installed, looking back at the files will be enough. If you want to do that, I would need access to your cpanel and ftp.
    I’d rather not do it by just talking through it with no access – that would be mind-numbingly frustrating for both of us (been there, done that, never again).
    So if my having access is okay, drop me an email and we’ll go from there: t2 @ tamba2 . org . uk

    Thanks podz:

    The control panel does not give me access to the MYSQL, The ISP are the ones who setup the database and insist that its functioning OK.

    I shall send you the database credentials and the ftp by email if that OK in light of the above paragraph.

    let me know.


    Yep – send it my way and I’ll work on it as soon as I get it.

    Sending the info to your email now, the wordpress files are in the WEBLOG folder within the HTML folder along with the Mainwebsite files that is currently being worked on.

    Check your mail in a few mins.



    I sent you my phone number ( to you email ) if you need to call me for more info as you work

    Check your email – it’s installed 🙂

    Thanks very much Podz..I shall take a look and let you know how I get on..

    Can you mail me when you can login ?
    I can go bed then .. it’s 00:51 here 🙂

    Hello again Podz!

    Thanks very much for the help.

    Unfortunately the password does not work so I an still in the same boat!!

    Guess I would need to delete the databas table again and I don’t kno how.


    Can you have another look please.

    sent you an e-mail too!

    Going to
    generates an error.
    Going to
    does not.

    By default, the server will look for an index file to serve to the broswer. This is usually ‘index.html’ or ‘index.htm’ but the server can be told to look for other index files. Your server has not been told to do that.
    What your server sees is a lot of files but nothing it has been told to show as default so it shows what you have been seeing (which is actually a protection measure)

    – tell your hosts to enable ‘index.php’ as a valid index file
    – use the full link to files. You may need to adjust the browser address bar.
