I'm still running into problems installing on 1and1's servers.

All the files install, but everything goes wrong when I attempt to create users (the screen right after you ask where to put the core files and what my email address is).

    My guess is write permissions. The installer suggests a location above
    the web root, so you might have no permissions there. Going to work out
    manual install options. It's not terrible, but definitely needs a
    step-by-step guide.

    Is that something that 1and1 can change for me?

    Yeah, I get the following problem when I decide to install it somewhere other than it suggests (it still doesn't work when I take the suggested file location).

    Ah yeah...thought that might happen. Let me look into how 1-and-1 is set up. Maybe we could do something like add a host-specific drop-down that'll pop it in the right place and only guess when told to.

    We've got a CRAZY week but I'll try and look into it this weekend. Which of the 1-and-1 hosting tiers are you on?

    That would be amazing! Thanks for giving me such personal attention, Jesse.

    I'll do all I can to promote CASH Music as you continue to roll out new features. I have a lot of connections musically, so I'll do what I can to make you guys known!

    I am on Linux 1&1 Dual Basic Web Hosting. Is that what you're looking for?

    I'm on 1&1 too and just ran across the same problem after installing. Are there any updates on this problem?

    Here's what I did and it seemed to work:
    1. Created a new directory in my root folder (thedronings)
    2. Created a new sub-domain and linked it to that folder (
    3. Went to 1&1 control panel, domains, then clicked the domain
    4. Copied "document root" and pasted into "Install core files here" (/homepages/45/d555555555/htdocs/thedronings)
    5. Installed, got trigger happy by logging in before copying the password, tried to delete the directory to do a fresh install, and generally mucked it all up.
