When we copy our wordpress files over to our a Remote Host, Zac just ftp's them. Should we create a folder first ?

In the URL, I type in this path: Shareyourpeace2.info/projectWordPressZac/ And I get this output:

Index of /projectWordPressZac

Parent Directory

wp-activate.php

wp-blog-header.php

wp-comments-post.php

wp-config-sample.php

wp-config.php

wp-cron.php

wp-links-opml.php

wp-load.php

wp-login.php

wp-mail.php

wp-settings.php

wp-signup.php

wp-trackback.php

xmlrpc.php

Apache Server at shareyourpeace2.info Port 80

In my Remote wp-config.ph I have these lines of code:

define('WP_HOME', 'shareyourpeace2.info/projectWordPressZac');

define('WP_SITEURL', 'shareyourpeace2.info/projectWordPressZac');

Can someone clarify where I am going wrong. Thanks.

Hi,

The URL isn't working at the moment so maybe you've resolved. It doesn't look however, like all the files made the upload. You should have a few folders as well in addition to the files. Is that visible to you?

Normally we install drop the WordPress files directly into the public_html folder, however, you can install in another folder like you have done as well.

Hope this helps!

Yes, you are correct. All of the files had not uploaded. I resolved that issue. Thanks.
