Can't add item: "could not retrieve element text"

I have been unable to add any items since I've installed. This is a brand new installation of Omeka 1.0 on a Godaddy shared server.

I was having the MIME type recognition problem described at so I disabled the validation function just to see if I could get it to work. Now when trying to upload or associate an item to a record I get the following error in the log:

DEBUG (7): Could not retrieve element text for the element named "IPTC Array"

Any help would be much appreciated!

It's possible that these two errors are unrelated. The first is an error uploading a file, and the second is a debugging message that isn't actually a fatal error (and wouldn't cause your Omeka install to halt).

In the past, users have had difficulty with GoDaddy shared hosting: I'd be interested in figuring out why and coming up with a solution if possible.

What happens when you try to upload a file unsuccessfully? What text appears on the screen?
