Support » Installing WordPress » Can’t View Site – Dashboard OK

  • I have installed WordPress 2.8.6 in a directory named /Blog

    At first I could not access the dashboard and was only getting an Index of /Blog. Someone told me to add the following file named index.html because the server was not recognizing the index.php:

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Public Register Blog</title>
    </head>
    <body onload=”document.location=’index.php'”>
    </body>
    </html>

    I added this to the wp-admin folder and can now access and work in the Dashboard. All works fine.

    Now to my current problem – trying to view the blog. When clicking ‘View Site’ from the dashboard I only get an Index of /Blog. I tried adding the index.html to the root of my Blog folder but it seems to send it into some kind of loop and I only get a blank page.

    I also tried creating .htaccess with this line: DirectoryIndex index.php –didn’t help

    My url: http://www.prars.com/Blog

    Someone told me to add the following file

    Bad idea in my opinion. The .htaccess method should work for the whole site – public and admin areas – providing you add it to root WP folder.
