Installation went fine and I'm able to log in and edit options. But when I click "view site", I get this error:
error 403: Forbidden! The server understood the request, but is refusing to fulfill it. Authorization will not help and the request SHOULD NOT be repeated.
My site url and database, etc values are correct.
My host is 1and1.com and I'm using OS X (which probably shouldn't matter since the blog & error are web-based)
Posts with similar issues mention ".htaccess" files but I see no such files in the wp1.5 archive that I downloaded.
This is a new/first time install, so no upgrade issues and I havent created any posts at all.
Any insight appreciated as I really don't want to have to try yet another blog pkg. My original idea was to install a couple pkgs & see which I preferred (hah!), but I've abandoned a Blosxom installation after spending an inordinate amount of time rectifying some host/server/formatting glitches and running into more...
