Can't get my wordpress to www.kurtdamron.com vs. www.kurtdamron.com/wordpress (19 posts)

    This may be a dumb question, but I can't figure it out. I installed wordpress to my server. All the files are in a folder /wordpress. Now, my page only shows up if I go to http://www.kurtdamron.com/wordpress. If I go to http://www.kurtdamron.com, I get a stupid error message:

    Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access / on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache/1.3.31 Server at http://www.kurtdamron.com Port 80

    I tried moving all of the files inside of the /wordpress folder to the main directory /, but nothing then the whole page looks weird and the links are broken.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I followed the directions and got this:

    Warning: main(./wp-blog-header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/n/o/r/normad/html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/semiologic/header.php on line 1

    I have also tried domain forwarding, and this too, for some strange reason, will not work.

    So.

    Your index.php is in /home/content/n/o/r/nomad/html

    And your wordpress files are in

    /home/content/n/o/r/nomad/html/wordpress?

    Just edit the template header and enter the right path to wp-blog-header in it, ie.,
    <?php require('/home/content/n/o/r/normad/html/wordpress/wp-blog-header.php') ?>

    edit header.php, line 1:

    require('./wp-blog-header.php');

    change to:

    require(ABSPATH.'/wp-blog-header.php');

    alternatively, i just uploaded the fix -- simply download the theme again.

    I tried that and got this:

    Warning: main(./wp-blog-header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/n/o/r/normad/html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/semiologic/header.php on line 1

    alternative fix: remove the line, it is useless.

    First off, thanks for all your help guys. I sincerely appreciate it.

    I removed the line and the page completely disappears. If I change the blog address URL under options to http://www.kurtdamron.com, all my syndicate images disappear and I get text only.

    I'm back to square one. Everything is still the same and I have the same problem. Should I just save my entries manually, uninstall, and then reinstall wordpress, the theme, and all the plugins?

    Yeah. Use http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_to_a_new_server to see how to save your entries and reimport them.. although I'd just reinstall without dropping the tables first.

    does the default theme work?

    probably theme related - I remember I also had some theme issues (and the PhotoPress plugin as well had some problems) - try first with the default theme

    Again, you guys are awesome for your help.

    Well, today my site is just gone. I can't get to http://www.kurtdamron.com or http://www.kurtdamron.com/wordpress. I have obviously seriously screwed something up. I removed the forwarding from my domain. I am going to try backing up the tables, deleting everything, reinstall, and then see if I can restore my 3 entries. yeah, only 3...so if I lose them, no big deal. I was just getting started anyway.

    Now, my question is this...do I install all of the worpress files to the root directory? just put them in http://www.kurtdamron.com/?

    It seems my issues were coming from having nested all the files in http://www.kurtdamron.com/wordpress.

    Thanks again guys!

    Denis: don't know if the default theme works because I can't even get to my site to log in.

    Oh yeah, and one more thing...I noticed that the fine folks at wordpress have assembled a list of hosting providers that seem to have a much sweeter deal than what I am getting at godaddy.com. Any of you have any recommendations? I might just go ahead and do a clean install on a new server with my new host! What do you think about that? I guess now would be the time to do it!

    I would run searches on the support boards on each of the hosts listed on the WP Hosting page. There have been some recent issues reported, and you don't need problems, do you?

    They also offer a 30-day refund.

    @normad -- well, you can supposedly make it work again by putting the line back into header.php. if only to let me know if it is my theme that is causing the problem or not.
