|I have slightly updated this to reflect the new Godaddy interface:
GoDaddy – 15 steps and done!
1.) Download "ActiveVFP 6.03 Zip File (IIS7 and above)" from the downloads page.
 Get GoDaddy account.
3.) Go to GoDaddy.com and Log In.
4.) From the Products tab, choose "Web Hosting", choose your Domain, and press the "Launch" button".
5.) Under "Options and Settings" scroll down to "Tools" and choose "IIS Management".
6.) Make sure it says "ASP.Net Runtime Version: 4.0/4.5". If not, choose "Modify" to change it. Make sure "Pipeline" at the top is set to "Integrated". If v. 4.0/4.5 is not available you may get a message saying you need
to upgrade – if you have Economy Classic change to Economy Web (it is a no-cost change – you may need to scroll up and down and back up the options to see it).
7.) Choose the "Create+" icon and enter a "Directory" name (e.g. AVFP) and check all of these: "Anonymous Access", "Directory Browsing", "Set Application Root". Press OK. This will process for a little while
with “Pending Setup” showing – Click the ‘Refresh List’box to monitor progress.
8.) Press the browser Back button and under "Options and Settings" scroll to "Tools", and choose "File Manager" (or it may still be available as a browser tab).
9.) At the top of the page, choose "Upload " and choose "File" button and browse to the ActiveVFP603.Zip file you downloaded in Step 1. Wait for it to Upload.
10.) Check on the left side of File Manager to see if the Directory you created in Step 7. exists yet. Refresh the page until you see it. Be very careful in File Manger – drag&drop is enabled and it is very easy to mess up the directory tree by accident.
11.) In File Manager, place a tick by the file ActiveVFP603.zip you uploaded in Step 9. Choose "Extract" from the ‘More’dropdown at the top and in the Extract popup choose the Directory name you created in Step 7.
12.) Select your new directory by clicking it in the left pane of File Manager and, find the "Web.config" file in the right-hand pane and click it. It will open in an "Edit" box. Make sure the following entry is there:
<trust level="Full" />
Click ‘Save’ and ‘Çlose’
13.) In the right-hand pane of your new directory tick the "Data" folder and choose "Privacy" at the top. UnCheck "Inherit" and Check "Web visible" and "Web writable", optionally Check "Set all subfolders
to inherit…". Press OK. UnTick the folder. Repeat these steps for the "Temp" directory.
14.) It might be useful at this point to go back to IIS Management and click “Recycle App Pool”
15.) Test by typing the following into your browser:
