It may be a different problem. The site that I put it on is a windows site with web.com. I have had the site up for several years. I created it in HTML4. I decided to try using wordpress, so I created a folder on my site called temp and installed wordpress there. When I put in my user name and password, I get and error 403 message
I found this solution
Solution: If your account is hosted on a Windows server, it could be a problem with the Directory Indexes. The default configuration of the server is to load index.htm, index.html, default.htm, default.html, default.asp files.
WordPress is done in PHP so the default page is index.php. Now, this is not part of the default configuration so we need to add it. To do this, you need to click on Web Options in the Control Panel. Then scroll down to the Directory Indexes section to add index.php to the Directory Indexes.
How do I access the control panel if it won't accept my password?
