Script Error, New Install

This is a new install and to be honest I'm completely illiterate when it comes to these things like this, but here we are.

My website is and my host is Freehostia

After several hiccups and messages exchanged with my host's help center, I was told that it would be best to contact the website developer or script vendor.

I tried to copy and paste the code in, but several files didn't move over so I did it manually.

No matter what I tried, index.php wouldn't go into any folder. Judging from the way my website looks now, I'm guessing that is a large part of the problem.

As this website would be solely for personal use, I'm not to worried about how it looks as long as it's functional

This site doesn't seem to have the most activity these days, so a special thank you to whoever can help in any way!

Hey, thanks so much for responding!

I'll be sure to send sheepcontrol a pm very soon.

The main problem is that I'm not entirely sure where the error is, and what exactly I did wrong in the installation process. I understand how this isn't any help at all, but that's part of the problem. I only took this on because I was under the understanding that everything was pretty self-explanatory, and it's obvious I widely overestimated my skills

I think if I could just figure out how to get the index files to be uploaded, or know what the reason I'm being told the files are empty everything would be good. Knowing myself, I'm hoping that it could be as simple as an odd setting I have.

Hi there,

sorry for being a bit late, I kinda have my head everwhere and nowhere.

If I get you right, you are not sure if the indexd.php is in the right place? Well that would be an issue for sure, so let's start there:

When opening the web directory on an ftp tool (if you aren't using web ftp client), is the file in the place that is considered your web directory?
And if so, is there a file called index.html, often default from the webspace setup? This can "overwrite" the index.php, meaning if you open the website in a browser, it would load the index.html file rather than the index.php that was uploaded.

Once I have the info, I can go from there.
