    I'm working on setting up my theme. Whenever I click on one of my menu items (pages) I get a 404 error saying "The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server."

    I'm also having an issue accessing mydomain.com although i can access mydomain.com/wordpress

    Please help

    It seems you installed your site in the wordpress folder
    e.g. instead of straight into the root.
    That is why http://mydomain.com will generate a 404-error and http://mydomain.com/wordpress won't.

    If you are just starting out:

    1. FIRST: In Dashboard > Settings > General Setting > change the 'wordpress address url' and 'Site Address url'to the CORRECT path: http://myExample.com' and save all changes.
    2. check out:

      go to heading
