Sorry but with the provided information it would result in users guessing what the problem could be, please edit the question and provide DNS details and the vhost setup. Or alternatively contact GoDaddy.

Sorry but the question is too board and unclear because of the lack of information provided such as configuration used, error logs and firebug information.

comment Why can't Google find the structured data on most of my indexed pages?
As I said it can take several crawls and it can take longer for it to appear in Webmaster Tools. It also takes longer for those schema to appear actually in the search engines i.e stars, in-stock- pricing and other perks that appear within search results (generally 2-3months). As long as your code checks out ok in rich snippet test there's little you can do... just tell customers that it takes 2-3months and you should never promise rich data appear actually in the results as Google doesn't always return the data in actual results.

comment Why can't Google find the structured data on most of my indexed pages?
Webmaster Tools can be slow to report findings as its not real time, additionally it can take several crawls too. The important question is how many of your URLS does Google scan a month, I very much doubt 27,000, since I would expect to see a larger number. Google will always index and update the most popular of pages as these get crawled more often, some urls that have not been updated for months to years could take days, weeks or even months to update..

comment Structured Data not working with my site
Sorry but the question is too board and too specific on your website that is unlikely to help other members and visitors on Pro Webmasters, also questions that links to other sites with what is the problem will be closed, ensure that you paste all information so users don't need to leave the site to answer the question. Ensure you read through our help center to avoid further disappointment. If you believe you can make your question more fit for Pro Webmasters then please edit your question and make it less specific and less board, a moderator will re-check the question once done so.

comment Apache 404 Issue after upgrading from Mavericks to Yosemites
Your document root looks wrong, DocumentRoot "/Users/" while the other one has DocumentRoot "Users/" Always ensure that your paths include a forward slash at the beginning... This occurs twice in the not working and once in the working... but change them all to /Users/

comment Is there any risk to a network if it allows FTP access to third party websites?
Sorry but this question appears to be off-topic because it is about security and about a internet connection not within your own control. Also, security related questions are best of asked on security.stackexchange.com but ensure you read their rules and faq before posting to avoid further disappointment.

comment Point custom domain to single webpage hosted on Dropbox
It would only be possible if DropBox added a feature to use custom domains which I believe they don't, through you can use their Api but you would still need a domain + own hosting to use, you can redirect but the address bar will change, there's no real way around that other than using a iframe but again, you need your own hosting, other solutions include: maketecheasier.com/4-ways-to-host-your-website-on-dropbox

comment Modifying the PHP “upload_tmp_dir” variable on a Godaddy Linux hosting?
You shouldn't need to edit the php.ini and the reason Joomla will have a hard time writing and reading is because you haven't set proper relative system paths. See my answer, I don't recommend editing the php.ini at all for such a common task, rename the php.ini to php.bak temporary while you look for other solutions.
