My manual installation on GoDaddy went fine. I get the login screen when I go into the system. When I use the root user and password, this is the error I get...So was my installation successful? and Why am I getting this error. I was able to get past the installation screens and to this page by following the method on another thread and by changing the conf.php-distribution file to conf.php and putting in the database parameters. Here is the error message. I could use the standard installation from GoDaddy, but they only have version 2.2 and that did not get good reviews and is missing functionality that I want.
