Have you heard of any issues loading the quickstart zip to Go Daddy’s Managed WordPress??? I’ve gotten the theme zip to load but am experiencing issues loading the quickstart zip. Which by the way I’d really love to have as it will make getting this going a whole lot easier. IS there someone who can help me load if needed? Thanks again!
To install theme on the Godaddy, using dw_focus_1.0.6_quickstart.zip. Please do as following:
Step1: Go to http://www.godaddy.com. Click Log in to My Account in the top left corner. Log into the Control Panel of GoDaddy using the details that were sent to your via email and click Log in.
See the screenshot:
Step2: Click My Account in the top left corner once you’ve logged in.
Step3: Scroll down and click + sybmol next to WEB HOSTING.
Step4: Find your domain in the list and click Launch.
See the screenshot: Step 5: On the frontend page scroll down click the File Manager icon under the Tools section.
Step6: By default the next page opens the webroot folder. You need to decide if you want to access your site from http://www.mysite.com (where mysite is your domain name) – then the dw_focus_1.0.6_quickstart.zip file should be uploaded to the ‘webroot ‘directory. Or if you want to open it from yoursite.com/dw-page(if you have some files in the webroot already) – then you will need to click “+New” -> New Folder at the top. Enter a name for your sub-folder (e.g. dwfocus) and click Ok That will create a new folder with the name you entered in the ‘webroot’ directory which you will need to double click to open and upload the files.
Step7: Click Browse and navigate to the dw_focus_1.0.6_quickstart.zip file on your computer.
Step8: Double click the wordpress.zip file or click on it and click Open to start uploading the file. At the left corner you will see a timer that shows the uploading process.
Step9: Once it’s finished uploading your file, you will see the dw_focus_1.0.6_quickstart.zip folder in the directory you uploaded it to. Check it to select, then go to the More -> Extract menu to unzip it. See the screenshot: Step10: In the window that pops up click the name of the directory you want to extract the content to. Click Ok.
Step11: When the dw_focus_1.0.6_quickstart.zip is unzipped , you will no longer need it, so check it to select, then go to the Delete menu. In the next window click Ok.
Step12: Create database.
Step13: Please open site URL on the browser then install theme.
If you still face the issue, You can send me username & password your hosting (via private answer). We will help you install theme.
Hope this helps!
