[resolved] Blog path leads to list of files "Index of /blog" (5 posts)

    My blog was up and running with no problems until I switched servers. I'm now renting server space that had wordpress already installed. When I transferred all the old files, I thought I put them in the correct folders.

    Now when I click the link to my blog, it leads to a white page listed with wp links and filenames. Name of page is "Index of /blog" (see it here: trishmonaco.com/blog)

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Looks like you fixed the prob. I see a welcome to WP.

    I assume you haven't transferred the database yet?

    Thank you. Yes, I did fix that problem. Now I'm suffering with a different issue. I'll search the forum for help.

    Oh, well I just fixed my similar issue. For anyone who finds this post, here's what happened with me (not that I understand how) :

    I was switching between themes and when I came back to my old theme my "blog" link was bringing me to "index of /blog" page. The problem was, that I did not have an actual directory named "blog" (or so I shouldn't have), I only had a static page called "blog" which WP used as my Posts Front page.

    Somehow, when switching between themes, an empty "blog" directory was created directly under my "public_html" directory. My browser was recognizing that as priority, and leading me their. I deleted that empty "blog" directory, and the old WP setting of "Blog for posts front page" was put back into functionality.

    Hope this helps
