Installed but blog won't redirect properly (6 posts)

    We just installed the latest version of WP (2.8) for our new blog. Everything went smoothly, but when we go to visit the blog, we get an error message saying the page isn't redirecting properly. We have our blog hosted in it's own subdirectory /blog. Any suggestions? Our WordPress URL and blog URL is http://www.marketingmatters.net/blog

    Seems like your index.php is being redirected back on itself in a loop.

    You can try uploading a fresh index.php from the core files and see what happens.

    Thanks for the response. Greatly appreciated. I did try to upload a new index.php file - even went so far as to download a new WordPress file and took the the index.php file from there. Still no luck.

    Must be a server configuration issue then - who do you host with?

    Scott,

    If you can't find anything wrong with your server setup, here's another thing you can try.

    From what you've said, you had your blog working correctly before the update. It looks like you are running WordPress on a windows server (IIS) so you probably did a manual install.

    Your admin login is still up is see. Depending on how long you went between installs, I might suggest backing up your wordpress database from the admin console in 2.8 (just in case), backing up your theme and plugin files, deleting your /blog folder, and doing a fresh manual install of the latest version.

    If configuring the database in the wp-config.php brings back everything, great. Otherwise make a new sql database, configure it in wp-config.php, run the install script at /wp-admin/install.php and then upload your 2.8 database backup.

    Dump your theme and plugin files in. This should get everything running.

    Re-installed and still no luck. This is actually our first blog so we aren't transferring files. I went with the simple install and everything seemed to be OK. I was able to install and can access the admin section, but just can get the blog to show up.
