Support » Fixing WordPress » 404 on blog home

  • Resolved Yvan


    I started wordpress a while ago and a few things start to work. Here is what I don’t seem to be able to fix:

    When on the blog at
    if you click on “Blog home” you get this message:

    You don’t have permission to access /blog/ on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache/1.3.33 Server at Port 80″

    I get a similar message when I am in wp-edit and click on “view site” to check the result on a change I made.

    I both cases what happens is that instead of landing on the home page of the blog at the /index.php is ommited and the browser lands at
    What should I change to come to the proper home url?

    The siteurl seems to be correct and has no /index.php.
    Is there anything to add/edit in the .htaccess file or anywhere else?

    WP is great but my ignorance makes the start a bit
    painful 🙁
    Any help is welcome.

  • I think this has something to do with your hosting setup, and it not using index.php as a default file. I think you need to contact your host about it. But I’m not positive.

    Add this line to your .htaccess
    DirectoryIndex index.php

    DirectoryIndex index.php
    works like a dream !
    Thanks a lot Rander
