Ok, I have tried to reinstall and redownload and everything I can think of but nothing has worked. When I goto Options->Writing and click the Update Options button I get the following:
You don't have permission to access /blog/wp-admin/options.php on this server.
ApacheR Server at http://www.phpshack.net Port 80
Not sure what the problem is, hoping I might get a few clues here.
BTW, I contacted my hosting support and mod_security is enabled, if this is the problem is there a workaround for this?
