    i am new to cpanel and using soho pro. i would like to use some of the fantastico add-ons like... wordpress for instance, since i don't really care for the blogging from soho. after hours and hours of reading posts from different sites, i do hope someone can give me some concrete instructions on how to accomplish this.
    when i try to add word press from fantastico, it won't allow it because it says that i can only have one script in my root folder.
    so my questions are: where do i assign the file?? and once i figure this part out, how do I use wordpress within my soho webpages? thanks for any help-
    i really appreciate brain hurts!:confused:

    In the root of your account there is a directory called .fantasticodata that contains data on the installations on the account.

    In the directory (whatever directory) you install a Fantastico script into, it also adds this file: fantversion.php

    Fantastico checks those two in that order.

    If you remove a script using Fantastico the same way you installed it, it'll clear the files related to it. If you simply delete the script files and database, it won't. So, you have to do that manually. (kill this file, fantversion.php and the file related to the script install inside the .fantasticodata directory.)

    No help for SoHo here, try over at their support area.
