Support » Installing WordPress » Apache directory lsiting… Indexof/wordpress

  • Hello I just installed Apache2, php4.4, and MySQL 4.1 on my winxp pro Pc at home to get wp running. I simply dropped the folder in the htdocs dir. named “wordpress.”

    I edit and save the config file, then when I go and access the site I get the directory listing like so:

    Index of /wordpress

    index.php 13-Feb-2005 19:38 95

    then I see the wordpress logo then the install instructions under it. I installed it, but I always get this page, each time I try to browse the site. How can I correct this issue. It wont let me login or show the index.php page. I’m stumped, any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Put this into your apache http.conf file:
    DirectoryIndex index.php index.php4 index.php3 index.cgi index.html index.htm index.html.var index.phtml

    (It's all one line)

    Podz thanks. Doh! forgot to do this, when I added the php info and stuff. thanks it is working now.

    Podz, I have a similar problem. I have a new WP install on an Apache server with mod_rewrite working. I was able to add a blank .htaccess file and get WP to update the Permalink structure. I also added “Options +Followsymlinks” at the top of the .htaccess file. But the Permalinks still do not work. Where do I find the apache http.conf file, so that I can add your DirectoryIndex line to it?

    That entirely depends where your server is – but adding that line into a .htaccess has the same effect.

    On my domains, I have no access to the .conf file – I use xampp on XP though where I do access it for local setups.

    Podz, adding that line to .htaccess worked. You’re my hero! Thanks a lot!!
