Hi Brenda,

No, you don't upload the CMS201 folder; you rename the 'rename_and_upload_this_folder' to (say, powercms) and upload that directory to the root (remote host) directory on your remote site (maybe /public_html/ - see below)

There are certainly path problems, - I think a previous bad install is making things problematic for you. If you visit:


you will see that it is looking for folders and files in a (CMS201) directory that is outside of (on the same level as) your root site's directory (/public_html/)

I think that you previously uploaded the cms files and folders and went through (at least a partial) install with the wizard, and some path information was written to the database.

If you deleted all the previous files and folders for previous uploads, and are using fresh files and folders, then the setup wizard should really be running again when you access the powercms directory.

The directory structure you attached shows the remote host directory as being 'www', while the errors seem to indicate that it should be (something like) /home/coused/public_html/'

Your Connections folder also seems not to be where it should be, so it may be that you are uploading all the files and folders to a directory that is not inside the correct remote host directory, but are instead in a directory parallel with - or higher than - the proper remote host directory.

Can you check that you have the correct remote Host directory entered in the site definition for the site?

If the powercms folder is indeed in the correct remote Host directory, and the files and folders are all present and correct, could you see if there is already a connections folder present (there shouldn't be) but if there is, check that it does not contain a text file called 'installed.txt' - if it does, delete it, and try accessing the directory again.

Jimmy will be here soon and will certainly able to sort it out. though.
