Support » Installing WordPress » directory listing denied

  • This is probably something stupid…
    I installed wordpress…it all seemed to go just fine…the login page came up…I logged in with the correct user and password…then, after login, I get the message
    “Directory Listing Denied”
    This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed.

    in the directory /wp-admin

    what did I do wrong?
    where’s the admin page?
    I check my directory permissions…everything seems set okay…??

    anybody know what I’m talking about?

    Your server is not setup to see index.php as a valid file.
    You need to ask your host to change their httpd.conf file (which is the best approach)
    or make a .htaccess file and put this in it

    DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php

    and put the file at domain root.

    but…what if I don’t want index.php to be my main page?

    You have to, otherwise WP will not work 🙂
