Okay i have tried on several different hosts and even uploaded with ftpsmart and i get this error on each and every one of them
The requested URL / was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
am i doing something wrong or is the product install link defective?
Chances are you're installing it into the wrong folder on your server so the board isn't being made available to the public.
When you log in to your host via FTP, you will usually be taken to the root folder of your account, which is private. Nobody else on the Internet can see any files you upload there. There is a folder named "public_html" which is where you need to upload files you want to share with the public (your web site). Often, there is another folder named "www", but this is is just a soft link to the "public_html" folder, and you can just ignore it.
So, when you log in via FTP, you may see a directory listing as follows:
../ ./ cgi-bin logs public_html tmp www
Upload everything into "public_html".
