Thank you Dawn for stepping in to provide some answers, it's very much appreciated! I'm a little behind on answering emails as I was trying to finish my latest set of blogs but tonight (Sunday) and all next week I'll be catching up!
As I mentioned to you (leonco) in the other thread, I've never ever had a problem with installing these blogs on Hostgator. Unlike Dawn, I have no issues at all uploading through File Manager but, her recommendation should work just as well. I guess we all have our own ways of uploading but Hostgator is one of those hosts that I don't have a problem with.
If you see my other reply, it would be great if you could email me at my support email so I can ask for certain information like your cPanel info (if you're ok with that) so I can try to install. I find I'm much more effective if I can try to install myself to see if I experience the same error/issue because sometimes communicating via email and/or forum posts leave out some critical info (not your fault, just saying the medium isn't always the best).
Anyway, if you're still having any issues, let me know and I'll be glad to help. I've literally installed hundreds of these blogs on a range of hosts (mostly hostgator) and other than the odd issue (such as with free hosting with limited capabilities) it's pretty much never a problem.
It's probably a very simple solution
Write to me and I'll be glad to dig further to help you out!
