Now it works, but I'm getting ALL SORTS OF ERRORS. this is a [removed] nightmare, i went and bought paid hosting, to AVOID these horrors,


even installing wordpress gives off errors, so, fine, i deleted out the entire contents of the htdocs directory, deleted all databases, uploaded wordpress latest, created a new database, set in all the configs, went in:


- errors trying to install plugins

- errors trying to install themes


and then so i tried the AUTO install via plesk,


- errors trying to install plugins

- errors trying to install themes


i uploaded and extracted the themes into wp-contents -> themes -> activated the theme




went fine.


then a whole host of other errors. server errors. 503. 520. 500.


problems installing other plugins.

problems configuring themes.


etc etc etc etc.


its errors upon errors upon errors, DESPITE A FRESH CLEAN AND MANUAL INSTALL, OR AUTO INSTALL, OR ftp-extract INSTALL.





I want my money back, PLEASE, this is INSANE!!! you're worse than 95% of FREE WEBHOSTS out there!!! (FYI themify works perfectly on another webhost, but i upgraded to godaddy paid, cuz i just wanted a little bit more SPEED, but all im getting are ERRORS ERRORS ERRORS

- do you think changing my plan from plesk, to cpanel, would help???

i am SUPER annoyed!!!! *TWO DAYS OF THIS!!!*

Hi @mobiuz. Sorry you had so much difficulty with this. From what I can tell, there was an issue on our end with this when you originally posted this message. However, that's been cleared up, so it shouldn't be happening anymore. If you are still having trouble, I'd recommend getting in touch with our customer care team so they can take a closer look.
