    Hi!

    I followed all instructions to install wordpress, and it seems to be fine because all tables were created but the problem began when I typed the password given after the installation process. It didn't work!! The page changed for:

    http://.../wp-admin/

    Could anyone tell me what's wrong?

    Thanks!

    Logging in using the username (admin) and the pw - yes, takes you to the "backend" of your WP installation, which is the wp-admin folder. Do you see the Dashboard there? Then you are OK.
    Do you want to see the blog? Look around (for more than 1 minute) in your admin panel... Study it. Try it.

    Hi

    Thanks for you suggestions, but I can't see any Dashboard, when I type the password the URL is now:

    http://... /wp-admin/

    and the page shows something like this:

    "You are not authorized to view this page"

    "You might not have permission to view this directory ..."

    And happens even if I reset the password.

    Do you think that the reason of this problem is the installation?? But I have done it twice.

    It's a starnge message - can you see the folders/files via FTP? Are the permissions correct on the folder/files?
    E.g. 755 for folders, 644 for files.

    It's suppose that I have all permissions because I'm the administrator of the server where I installed WP.

    My question is: What shuold I see after enter the password?

    This is the link for the loging screen in my server:

    http://dn.ccm.itesm.mx/egade/blog/wp-login.php

    the user: admin

    password: 4c5637b

    http://dn.ccm.itesm.mx/egade/blog/wp-admin/options-general.php works ok... You may have a problem with recognizing index.php as the default index?

    It's acting as if upon finishing the authorization (successfully) wp-login.php unceremoniously dumps you into the wp-admin/ directory and the server is refusing to default to index.php.

    I think it's a server/host issue. Write them a note. (Unless you have a DirectoryIndex directive in some .htaccess file that doesn't include index.php).

    Oh, and you should change the password now ;')

    It's suppose that I have all permissions because I'm the administrator of the server where I installed WP.

    Then you should learn how to administer a server before using it... For starters: your permissions and file permissions are two different things.
