hi guys,

I check many company and it seems every hosting company got different plan and different price..

i got a godaddy account so I am thinking i may just get a hosting deal with them.

i saw this page.

so is godaddy ok to host the symbiostock site?

but actually what is a hosting company? is it like a server space for us to put our images in internet?

Yes, hosting company gives server space. You can place all images and site files there and assign to it domain name (you can buy it also from godaddy).

Some people use godaddy hosting and it works for them, so it should be ok, but maybe wait a bit for someone with account there.
BTW, Godaddy offers linux and windows hosting, for symbiostock linux is better.

I (along with a bunch of others) use GoDaddy (w/ Linux O/S) for my Symbiostock website and have had no major issues.

There is another thread that lists which web hosting service people have used.  You should look for that thread and read it.

Also, the Symbiostock forums have basically moved to, so you should probably post there from now on.

i try to follow the symbiostock guide..

so i install wordpress in godaddy first.. do i need to register a wordpress account?

i was prompt to enter username and password and matched the password (i assume it is the process i registered a wordpress account?)

do i need to install under directory? i just leave the directory blank..

i then click install it and it seems the install takes long time, always 'installing'..i google it said it can take up to 24 hours?

i try to connect the jetpack plugin to add a 'contact me' page..

i was asked to login to wordpress.. i tried to login with the set of username and pw i generated when i install the wordpress in godaddy but fail..

i once registered with wordpress to have a free blog, then i seems able to connect the jetpack through the set of username and password, but i didn't see the 'add contact form' button under new pages..

the so many set of username and pw are confusing.. and not sure is it the reason the 'add contact form' not appearing?

i guess i need to take a break from the installation now..

try to check again tomorrow.

This sounds very similar to a problem discussed in the Symbiostock forum

You don't need to deal with Jetpack at all to get Symbiostock going - you can just deactivate the plugin for new and focus on getting WordPress installed and functioning.

I have my site running with Jetpack (so it absolutely does work) but I had an older WordPress installation which I think I installed and got running before I added Jetpack, so I don't recall the details.

See if the discussion on the Symbiostock forums helps your situation

You need to find out from your host what your user name and password are and how to set up FTP. For bluehost it's

Once you can log in and look around to see the default files, you've done that part.

Then you're ready to set up the directory for your FTP uploads to go to. In the WordPress Stock Images section (ladybug) click on Upload Images and you'll see the FTP directory for your site as a full path organized like this:

/home_some number/probably_user_name/your_public_root_probably_public_html/wp-content/plupload/uploads/

My FTP client lets me specify the directory to connect to, but I can skip all the stuff up to my public root and just put the path from the WordPress installation, /wp-content/plupload/uploads/ in the above example

You will get more timely responses if you post in the Symbiostock forums rather than here...
