Just FYI - I finally decided that it was an(other) issue with GoDaddy. I was able to get it working perfectly with an exact copy of everything on DreamHost (which then, of course, had an 11 hour scheduled 8 hour outage). So - I’m giving Helping Hand Hosting a try. They have a plan specifically for Magento and are installing it for me. We’ll see how we go!
