I am installing WordPress at web.com.
The install seems to go fine. I get to the login screen, but login results in the following:
403 – Forbidden: Access is denied.
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.
I have found several attempts to address this in the fora, but the only thing that obviously worked was a solution using Plesk, which I do not beleive web.com supports. They use phpMyAdmin.
Someone suggested “I’ve added a .htaccess file to my /wordpress/wp-admin/ directory with the following line: DirectoryIndex index.php index.html” But the same person said that did not resolve the issue. If it is something worth trying I would need guidance as to how it is done.
I have cleared cookies and cache and I have done a few reinstalls, including a reinstall from a fresh download from WordPress.
Any new ideas on this? My friends suggests “just switch to DreamHost” but short of changing providers? 🙂 Thanks!
