- 0 + You should realize that different IP doesn't mean different server.

But I'm starting to think you're having server issues.

Looks like you might be on GoDaddy servers. Did you use the one button install?

- 1 + So you didn't use the APP installer built into GoDaddy's control Panel.

Why don't you consider doing a backup if you did any customizations and removing everything. Kill the database. Re-install from Softalicious or whatever is there in the Hosting Control Panel and see if your problems go away.

I've installed this stuff hundreds of times now and the best way is to use the one button installers built into some better control panels. My first Choice anyway.

The next best is to install from a know good download via FTP. The last is to use a File transfer mechanism from the Host's CP (I usually won't do that unless the host is very economical).

I can vouch for GoDaddy being able to support Pligg. Most of my Pligg sites run from Wild West Domains (GoDaddy) sites as I'm a reseller there.

This is pretty much what I'd do next!

- 1 + Okay... okay. This is getting ridiculous!!!

If you didn't do any customizations and/or don't have anything at all you're afraid to lose in your database or configuration settings then don't bother with the backup!

But I'd do the rest of what I suggested. Kill the whole mess and do a one button install from Softalicious or what ever 'One Button' Installer is provided.

I don't know what else to tell you there.

I do know that the GoDaddy control panels usually have a 'One Button' Installer.

And I do know that they work well!!!

I'm a little amazed that you are hung up on this Backup/No Backup issue when the solution might be right there in the tasks outlined right after that!

Just make sure that your CP offers Pligg 2.0.2 and then do it!!!! That's how it's done here at my shop. I don't hand install anything I don't have to.

- 1 + I think I'll just go ahead and answer this one cause I know it's coming............

You told me your hosting provider is GoDaddy if I remember right.

Call them! Ask them if your hosting account offers an auto installer with Pligg 2.0.2.

If they say, "yes" then ask them to walk you through getting to that and running the installer.

If they say, "no" then ask them how to get Pligg 2.0.2 installed on your hosting account. Tell them you've had trouble getting it to work. Do what they tell you.

- 0 + I visited your sites again. From here it looks like the installs worked but you have some very weird problems.

Are you trying to run multiple Pliggs from a single host account? That's not easy but can be done with the proper GoDaddy hosting accounts. But it almost takes the ability of an network engineer to do this. It gets confusing when one install happens to call the facilities of the other which is what I suspect may be happening there.

My suggestions are:

Call GoDaddy Support again and work with them

Or

It appears you live in Hyderabad. I get emails almost daily about 'Web Professionals' with 'engineering backgrounds' who are in Hyderabad. I think it's time for you to look at hiring one of them.

Else

Do the one hosting account - one Pligg build then revisit this 'Single Hosting Account' setup later.

- 0 + Your site doesn't like my URLs.

Your site is confusing with all the duplicate ads obfuscating the submit button to where you can't hardly find it.

How did those ads get there? That's not a pristine install! Someone modified the templates or added the ad code!!!

You have all those ads and no content. There's little reason to join a website that doesn't have content or any compelling reason to join.

If it did work it would just be a haven for spammers.

Never the less, If you'll email me the site and host credentials or elevate user 'Gort' to admin I'll take a look by Thursday night. I'll probably really need the host credentials to get anywhere.

Email me. Do Not post that sensitive info here!!!

- 0 + Hee Hee, I wondered if you could find that from your site! That's the kind of info that is there when you have registered users. As you go along you'll learn a lot of this info about your users. They are trusting you, be careful with it.

Anyway, If you'll look in my profile here or user Gort in your site you'll have the email address. spambait@gmx.com
