Cannot Install Wordpress on a Subdomain of Godaddy
Posted on 2013-06-21
I have installed wordpress numerous times but for some reason I am hitting a brick wall with my current installation.
I have created a subdomain called "info". I have extracted the wordpress files to that subdirectory. Godaddy.com is the hosting service.
I have been following the steps in the Wordpress famous 5 minute install. I have created the MySQL database and user as I normally do. I have edited the database, user and password into the wp-config.php file.
However when I put the install.php path into my browser's address bar it fails with the following error message:
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, firstname.lastname@example.org and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.2.24 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.24 OpenSSL/1.0.0-fips mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/184.108.40.20635 Server at info.doc-designs.net Port 80
The log files do not give any useful data. It just tells me that the Install.php file was the last file that I tried to execute.
Can anyone suggest a way to solve this problem?
