    Installing WordPress via Heart Business Pro 2

    Hi Janie,
    Am going potty! Have spent last 3 hours trying get WordPress so that I can start building my site.
    I have bought the domain name & hosting – both with Heart … Have attempted to follow your first tutorial to install WordPress, however, when I click “Install”, I don’t get a link to my website, I get an error message saying:

    “There was a problem installing the requested script. Please make sure that the directory you are installing to is empty”

    I didn’t choose the directory, it automatically came up with:
    D:\Sites\slimhappyandeating.com\public_html\

    & I left it as that, as per the tutorial,

    When I check my D drive in “My Computer” it says it’s empty.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks Sara.

    fyi home pro is actually easier than business pro with Heart Internet.

    Hi Steve,

    It’s much much easier if you just use home pro rather than the business option. Might be worth speaking to heartinternet about this. Let me know if you get stuck.

    Hi Jamie

    I am using home pro but this “There was a problem installing the requested script. Please make sure that the directory you are installing to is empty” keeps popping up when I try to install. Any ideas?
    Cheers

    Hi Steve,

    It’s most likely because there are files in the directory you are trying to install WordPress into. Here’s a little video to show you how to delete them.

    Once done, try the installation again,

    Let me know if that works,
    jamie
