Manual Install WordPress on GoDaddy 2G Web Hosting Plan

You may got this message "This application is NOT compatible with any of your hosting plans" when attempt to install WordPress on GoDaddy 2G Web Hosting. If you did not want to upgrade to 4G plan, you can manual install a latest version of WordPress by yourself.
  1. Make sure the setting for PHP version is 5.3 in Programming Languages section.
  2. Create MySQL database for WordPress from your GoDaddy Web Hosting control panel. Here the database name is same as user.
  3. Download the latest stable release of WordPress (Version 3.4.2) here.
  4. Unzip the archive, modify wp-config-sample.php as instructed in Famous 5-Minutes Install page.
  5. Upload to GoDaddy web hosting.
If you experience the Http error 500, check your wp-config.php to make sure the database user name has no @ sign (myusername not myusername@127.0.0.1 for example)
