Directory Listing Denied (5 posts)

    After I log in as an admin for wordpress (just after installation), and click the button, I get in big letters:

    "Directory Listing Denied"

    and in smaller letters:

    "This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed."

    Anyone know what the problem is and how to fix it?

    MOst likely index.php is not set as a valid index on your site. Contact your host and tell them to do it.

    What do you mean? I have wordpress set up in a subfolder so its not my home page.

    I didn't ask that. Nor does it matter.

    Ther are 2 issues when the error you quoted appears:
    1. index.php file is not set as a valid index file on that server. Period. (and I really meant you contact your host if you don't know what it means)
    2. Not being able to display the index.php the server tells you it won't let show the listing of the files in the directory you are looking at (this is actually a good thing: otherwise every visitor would see all the files and folders you have there!)
