Encountering a problem?
Determining the correct folder for the ftp uploads is done simply by trying to open certain folders in the right order.
The order in which the app tries to enter folders is this:
domains \ _usersupplieddomain_ \ html \ htdocs \ public_html \ www \ wwwroot
This ensures support for all modern webhosts.
Please let me know if your webhost uses an incompatible folder layout on the ftpserver, and provide me a screenshot (via email (click the keyboard) or here in the comment section), i'd be happy to update the app.
Geek talk; Technical explanation of how the app works
When the user submits the data, the app connects with the ftp.
In slow mode (max compatible), next: the app uploads http://wordpress.org/latest.zip.
Then, the app uploads an php script (click to see it).
After uploading is complete, the app opens a webview, visits the url to the php script.
In fast mode, the php script downloads http://wordpress.org/latest.zip.
The php script unzips the wordpress zip file and puts everything in place.
The php script deletes itself, and sends the webview in the app user to the wordpress first-run script with a header redirect.
