    Need assistance installing a script/site hosted by hostmonter


    The site comes with the installation manual(below), seems pretty straight forward but for some reason the site wont' show up. My hosting is with Hostmonster and Ive uploaded everything to /public_html

    The first step:
    Code:
    1. Open /include/config.php
    
    Find:
     /home/username/public_html
    
    Replace with the path to your public web directory.
    Ive replaced it with my directory name ---> /home1/myusername/public_html

    Ive also uploaded all site files to the root directory /home1/username/ with the same config file and everything showed up, so Ive removed the site files from the /public_html and it stopped again. Confusing, seems like files need to be delegated between those two directories, dont know what else could be.

    Everything else was replaced properly as well.

    Any help would be appreciated. Tia

    Complete inst. instructions
    Code:
    1. Open /include/config.php
    
    Find:

    Replace with your database password.
    
    Find:
    database_name
    
    Replace with your database name.
    
    2. Import database.sql into your newly created database for the script.
    
    3. Upload all files in the public folder to your web server's public directory.

    The files need to be placed in /public_html.

    yeah the files are there, but the only way the site shows up if I upload the same files to the root directory, very strange...Ive installed many wordpress/joomla sites via /public_html without any problems

    Hello,

    You should ask your hosting provider. It seems that the virtual folders are not setup correctly.
