    Hey, im new to wordpress and looking for help. Im running Ubuntu on my server. The installation worked a treat. But when i go and preview the page i just get the apache front screen - "
    It works!

    This is the default web page for this server.

    The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet."

    I have no idea whats gone wrong but hopefully its simple to resolve!
    Thanks,
    Aled.

    Okay that looks like the user home directory, I am interested in the web root directory. (Try /var/www)?

    Ok that's what I wanted to know.

    Try renaming index.html to index-default.html.
