May be your server software is too old

My 2 cents: Whether an extension is in the CDB says nothing about its quality. It is more important to read the support topics for it. Better to avoid authors who do not answer support questions themselves, who do not update their stuff, and who do not fix bugs for years.

it is a pretty good bet that the server software at hostgator is not "too old".

just upload all the files again. make sure you are using a real ftp program and that all of the files are being uploaded in binary and that you are uploading them all at the same time.
