Wordpress + Plusnet

« on 12/10/2011, 15:56 »

Hello folks - trying to install wordpress on our plusnet account and so far nothing.

I followed this:,85127.0.html

But still nothing...

Ran this script (i think):,84349.0.html

Still nothing... when i try to install wordpress it downloads the install.php file.

I wish there was a numpties way to install wordpress on this hosting - straight forward with previous hosts.

Any help welcome.

I think most of my problems are down to PlusNet not sending me the emails once the CGI was set up months ago.

Hopefully I can get this sorted out now I know roughly what I'm doing.

I recently asked for a reset of my CGI space and after a couple of prompts I eventually got fresh login details.
