When I got stuck at 95% during first wordpress installaton through softaculous, I read a post about deleting everything in htdocs folder and delete every database. I did that. But during wordpress installation for second time I got stuck at 95% again. When I checked filemanager in htdocs folder I saw that 2 folders i.e.“wp” and “wp2” are still there(i tried installing in this folder). Tried deleting these but getting error “could not read line from socket”. Please help. I am just starting my first website.
Thanks OxyDac for pointing out the .htaccess name. Currently i am unable to uninstall through softaculous because the installation was never complete. I have created a new account after deleting everything in the previous account. tried installing wordpress but stuck at 95% again. So I am trying to upload Wordpress manually through ftp. Filezilla says insecure-server-it-does-not-support-ftp-over-tls. But I am ignoring it now.
Thanks for your reply. Somehow during FTP process 1 prompt told me that the server uses tls 1.2 so I am sure the issue is from Filezilla side. Also now I am able to manually delete files and folders. No problem right now.
I was a fool to manually install wordpress in a sub-folder and not in htdocs folder. But I got around with it with some changes in .htaccess. So in just 3-4 days I was able to launch my first website with ssl and wordpress. Imported blogs from my blogger too. I can’t be more happier than that.
Also thank you all for your prompt responses. This is a very active community. I am new and don’t understand technical details so please guide me in future too. Thank you.
