After installing, WordPress not automatically loading index.php (3 posts)

    Hi, I have just installed the latest version of WordPress, have Apache and MySQL installed. All feels good, but when I navigate to the site, all the files are displayed and the page only loads after manually clicking the index.php. This is the same for the admin.

    So obviously, once I have the page loaded there is not much I can do as it always fails to find the index.php. I remember on installing an older version, there was the ability to specify where wordpress would live. That does not appear to be in this version??

    What do I need to do? This is slowly driving me nuts:(

    Thanks

    You need to create a .htaccess file, then put this one line in:

    DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php

    Thx, fixed it. Added the index.php to httpd.conf. Thought I added it already but apparently not:)
