error with initial install on fatcow.com hosting

I'm evaluating CMS systems for a personal project I am hosting on fatcow.com.
Install seems to work OK. When I try to edit the default "start" page as the admin user I get a message window with the number "0" in it, no other text, then a message window with "Please check back over the form - you did not fill in all fields on the form correctly". After clicking OK I then see a red error message on the page that says "admin is not an active username". admin IS an active username. I've uninstalled and reinstalled twice using Simple Scripts as provided by fatcow and have gotten the same error with both installs.:(

If you'd like us to take a look please submit a support ticket with FTP details. I've tried to do a test with SimpleScripts and Fatcow (I have access to a hosting account on it), but I can't even maintain an FTP connection to it unfortunately let alone install.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

The fatcow ftp problem seems to have been fixed. I'm going to clean out the current install and try again with simplescripts. If I still get the error I will open the ticket and get you the ftp access.
Thanks
