Support » Installing WordPress » CGI Scripts

  • I have installed wordpress with no problems, but when I click on the login link, it says “file not found.” My host does not allow CGI scripts so I was wondering if this was the problem. I have checked many times and I do indeed have wp-login.php uploaded so I don’t know what is wrong.

    WP is not CGI, and must not be installed into the cgi-bin
    Is the file ‘wp-login.php’ definitely on the server ?

    Yes it is on the server. I use a freehost called so it might be that they aren’t allowing something that is required to run WordPress.

    I had installed it in a subdirectory, but then I moved all the files to the foot of my site. I think everything is working fine now. Thanks for your help. But then once on my login page, all I have is “profile”, “view your page” and “logout.” I can’t find anywhere to actually add a post or anything.

    When you first installed WordPress, it gave you the username “admin” and a randomly-generated password (six numbers/letters). Did you login using THAT username/password combo? Because it sounds like maybe you’re using a user that has no rights or very limited rights. But you’d have had to create that user. What happens when you click “View your page”? Can you get to the login link from there? Maybe it’s a browser refresh issue? I’m just throwing out ideas here, hoping one will stick to the wall!

    Yep, I think I got it all fixed. Thanks for your help
