Yesterday, i've created a new hosting account on Bluehost and create a new domain named "tabu-tabu.com".
Today i would like to install Wordpress using the Simple Scripts method.
When i click on the "install now" button for wordpress , i'm unable to go to the step 2.
I've an error message "Server Auto-Configuration Failed" and it displays some solutions ! But i'm unable to solve it!
Anybody can help me ?
here the solutions :
Your domain name (DNS) may not be pointed to your hosting account.
Chances are, this is where your problem lies. If you have pointed (redirected) your domain to a website or hosting account outside of the one you are using for this installation, we won't be able to install anything on this account. Your webhost may provide an 'alternate access URL' to your account, of which we are probably already aware and have tried. If at all possible, point your domain name to this hosting account, and we will continue as normal.
>> i don't think it's that problem as i create the name domain and hosting account via Bluehost
You may be Redirecting traffic elsewhere.
You may have a 'hard redirect' setup through your host's control panel, or by using a '.htaccess' file or similar. Try renaming or deleting this file from your account to remove the redirect.

Your FTP root directory may not exist.
This directory, called your 'FTP Root', is where all of your publicly available folders and files live. Common locations for this are "public_html", "httpdocs", "www", "htdocs", and assorted others. Check with your webhost to make sure one of these folders exists on your account.
>> "www" and "public_html" exists on my hosting account
Your domain is protected by password authentication.
If you require a password to access your entire domain (not just one section), we cannot bypass that security. For the duration of the installation, please deactivate that authentication. Installation takes only a few seconds, and if you must deny access, try putting an 'Access Denied' page up or set your domain to 'Maintanance Mode'. Your host can further assist you if you have any questions about this.
