I searched around and came up with topics relating to reinstalls and plug-in issues, but nothing like this.
I just tried to install WP for the first time and everything went smoothly (set up apache serving static pages, database user and tables, etc) until I try to load the install.php file when I get an http error 403. I have WP in the /blog/ directory of my site. If I place a php file called test.php in my /blog directory it is accessible, if I move it to the /wp-admin/ directory I get a 403. If I rename the wp-admin directory and put a clean one in its place and move my test.php file inside I can access it. My files permissions are set to 644 and directories to 755. All of my other html pages on my site are accessible from the web. There is no .htaccess file in the wp-admin directory. Any hints? Is it WP, apache, php, or something else?
