Support » Installing WordPress » 404 Not Found-error when trying to install WordPress

  • SophieHolterman



    I’m trying to install WordPress on I followed all the detailed instructions for DirectAdmin, changed the wp-config-sample.php into wp-config.php, created a database on DirectAdmin to send the WordPress-files to, filled in all the right data into wp-config.php (I’m almost sure I did it right), downloaded FileZilla to transfer the files… but it isn’t working. When I visit I see ‘404 Not Found’. Somewhere in between my attempts, I went to, where I saw a html-code with a sentence in it like ‘PHP does not exist’, or something like that. I tried a little more (used other directories in FileZilla to send my files to) and now gives a list of files with a title above it saying ‘Index van /’. (van is Dutch for for)

    I’ve already sent a message to the host/server/or what it’s called, because the only reason I could think of for this problem is that I don’t know what my Root Directory is.

    My question to you: could something else be wrong? What should I do?

    I hope you can help me.
