desperately need some help! website displaying index of /

    Hello,

    I’v been loking for days now, tried a million different things and it’s now making my brain explode.

    basically I made a wordpress site, custom css thesis theme and all that, bought a domain and hosting package, using filezilla 2 for mac, and it wont work. I think I’m just missing a tiny detail as I can see what I’ve got, but its just displaying index of/ and all my files..

    website: http://www.kieranfivestars.com

    directory is public_html/all the files from my website, wp-content ect..

    I have an idea of what I’m doing 😛 don’t get me wrong, but some things are just completely beyond me, would really appreciate some interest, thank you.

  • The index.php file is missing.

    If one file is missing, it would be wise to be sure if any other files are also missing.

    ok so I downloaded wordpress folder again from the site and copied over index.php but all it has inside it is..

    <?php
    /**
    * Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn’t do anything, but loads
    * wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
    *
    * @package WordPress
    */

    /**
    * Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
    *
    * @var bool
    */
    define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, true);

    /** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
    require(‘./wp-blog-header.php’);

    What do I need to write in here to get my site to work? Thank you

    The index.php file is correct as it is.

    Looking at your site now, it appears as if your wp-config.php file may have some incorrect values, as there is a Database Connection error.

    NO the database user name password are what set when you created the database you will need to log on server or ask your host to help you.

    @kieranfivestars

    also do I have to export mysql from wordpress? or make one in cpanel? I’m so confused lol.

    anyone have an example of what there wp-config file looks like?

    thank you

    Kieran Hunter

    @kieranfivestars

    now its telling me to install wordpress?? http://www.kieranfivestars.com

    govpatel

    @govpatel

    You still do not have right database info in your wp-config.php so database can not connect you need recheck.
    Who is your host?

    Kieran Hunter

    @kieranfivestars

    i have entered db-name, user, and pass correctly I think, i’v used the info from my sql section in cpanel, i have the db_host as ‘localhost’

    and http://www.ukwebhosting.com/

    thank you

    govpatel

    @govpatel

    I need to check with your host as I am getting this

    The connection has timed out

    The server at http://www.kieranfivestars.com is taking too long to respond.

    The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
    moments.
    If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network
    connection.
    If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
    that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

    @kieranfivestars

    yeahh me too :/

    question tho, does my user and password in filezilla have to be the same as my MySql in cpanel?

    and is the username and pass in MySql database the one you put inside wp-config?

    can you understand what I am trying to ask here? thank you.

    govpatel

    @govpatel

    They do not have be same your ftp username and password are set when you create your host account most likely will same as your host account.

    Database user name password are set when you create the database.

    WordPress user name and password are set when you install wordpress.

    @kieranfivestars

    oh right ok, well I have all of this information, but it’s now saying unable to connect and it has http://www.mywebsite.com:8888 at the end? this is what I use when connect to my website locally using MAMP localhost:8888 so I don’t know what this means?
