I'm painfully new to wordpress and have hit a problem trying to get a local installation to work. I've followed the installation instructions and everything seemed fine, installation was successful and I can log in to the back end.
The problem is when I go to the root http://localhost/wordpress/ I just get a list of the directory. This happens whenever I try to view the site.
Have I missed something obvious in the installation process? Do I need to define the local folder or something? I've tried searching out the problem but to no avail..
Any help much appreciated
