Can’t get my wordpress to www.kurtdamron.com vs. www.kurtdamron.com/wordpress

  • This may be a dumb question, but I can’t figure it out. I installed wordpress to my server. All the files are in a folder /wordpress. Now, my page only shows up if I go to http://www.kurtdamron.com/wordpress. If I go to http://www.kurtdamron.com, I get a stupid error message:

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

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache/1.3.31 Server at http://www.kurtdamron.com Port 80

    I tried moving all of the files inside of the /wordpress folder to the main directory /, but nothing then the whole page looks weird and the links are broken.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I followed the directions and got this:

    Warning: main(./wp-blog-header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/n/o/r/normad/html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/semiologic/header.php on line 1

    Warning: main(./wp-blog-header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/n/o/r/normad/html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/semiologic/header.php on line 1

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘./wp-blog-header.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/content/n/o/r/normad/html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/semiologic/header.php on line 1

    I have also tried domain forwarding, and this too, for some strange reason, will not work.

    So.

    Your index.php is in /home/content/n/o/r/nomad/html

    And your wordpress files are in

    /home/content/n/o/r/nomad/html/wordpress?

    Just edit the template header and enter the right path to wp-blog-header in it, ie.,
    <?php require('/home/content/n/o/r/normad/html/wordpress/wp-blog-header.php') ?>

    edit header.php, line 1:

    require(‘./wp-blog-header.php’);

    change to:

    require(ABSPATH.’/wp-blog-header.php’);

    alternatively, i just uploaded the fix — simply download the theme again.

    I tried that and got this:

    Warning: main(./wp-blog-header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/n/o/r/normad/html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/semiologic/header.php on line 1

    alternative fix: remove the line, it is useless.

    First off, thanks for all your help guys. I sincerely appreciate it.

    I removed the line and the page completely disappears. If I change the blog address URL under options to http://www.kurtdamron.com, all my syndicate images disappear and I get text only.

    I’m back to square one. Everything is still the same and I have the same problem. Should I just save my entries manually, uninstall, and then reinstall wordpress, the theme, and all the plugins?

    Yeah. Use http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_to_a_new_server to see how to save your entries and reimport them.. although I’d just reinstall without dropping the tables first.

    does the default theme work?

    probably theme related – I remember I also had some theme issues (and the PhotoPress plugin as well had some problems) – try first with the default theme

    Again, you guys are awesome for your help.

    Well, today my site is just gone. I can’t get to http://www.kurtdamron.com or http://www.kurtdamron.com/wordpress. I have obviously seriously screwed something up. I removed the forwarding from my domain. I am going to try backing up the tables, deleting everything, reinstall, and then see if I can restore my 3 entries. yeah, only 3…so if I lose them, no big deal. I was just getting started anyway.

    Now, my question is this…do I install all of the worpress files to the root directory? just put them in http://www.kurtdamron.com/?

    It seems my issues were coming from having nested all the files in http://www.kurtdamron.com/wordpress.

    Thanks again guys!

    Denis: don’t know if the default theme works because I can’t even get to my site to log in.

    Oh yeah, and one more thing…I noticed that the fine folks at wordpress have assembled a list of hosting providers that seem to have a much sweeter deal than what I am getting at godaddy.com. Any of you have any recommendations? I might just go ahead and do a clean install on a new server with my new host! What do you think about that? I guess now would be the time to do it!
