Wordpress + Plusnet


Hello folks - trying to install wordpress on our plusnet account and so far nothing.
I followed this: http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,85127.0.html
But still nothing...
Ran this script (i think): http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,84349.0.html
http://artisanoption.co.uk/script.cgi
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.

Hi aiao,
It looks like you've uploaded it to your standard webspace rather than your CGI webspace.

Hi Jojo
The CGI Script?
http://www.XXXX.co.uk/CGI/script.cgi
Still no joy.   
When I go to http://www.XXX.co.uk/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php  all it does is download the install.php file.

Re: Wordpress + Plusnet

Did you upload it to ftp.plus.net or cshell.plus.net?

Re: Wordpress + Plusnet

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.
Cheers!

Re: Wordpress + Plusnet

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

Re: Wordpress + Plusnet

That URL is the website address. The next table on that help page tells you the address you should upload (FTP) scripts to. The username and password to use are the ones you used to log into the Member Centre at the time you activated your ccgi webspace,
