Hi, I'm an idiot. I can't get my manual install to work. I had this problem fixed a month ago, but my "notes" are not good enough to crack it this time.
I manually installed it to godaddy hosting, with multiple domains and folders. /wordsite is the folder that I installed WP to. So I also made the database with DSN installed and direct access enabled.
/wordsite folder : all files and folders have write permissions
So I get it installed, but I can't install any themes or plugins. -This is my problem.
So I put this in the wp-config file:
define('FS_METHOD', 'ftpext'); define('FTP_USER', 'private'); // either your FTP or SSH username define('FTP_PASS', 'private'); // password for FTP_USER username define('FTP_HOST', 'private'); // hostname:port combo for your SSH/FTP server define('FTP_BASE', '/wordsite/'); // absolute path to root installation directory
I don't know if the FTP_BASE is correct, but I have tried it many ways with "/" gone and such.
Can anyone give me any example of this or tell me if there might be something else that is wrong?
The PHP and MySQL is up to date and I had it working before.
PLEASE help! I have no idea what to do.
