    Hi there,
    I have uploaded wordpress into a folder called blog under my main web server folder using Dreamweaver and have checked the folder permissions (755). Trying to access the http://www.xxxxxx.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php page I get
    a 503 - service temporarily unavailable error message from my Apache server. Can anyone advise me why this is happening? I think it probably is an Apache error, but am clueless as to how to deal with it.
    The error log shows:

    [Sat Jan 12 15:59:20 2008] [error] (111)Connection refused: proxy: AJP: attempt to connect to [::1]:8009 (localhost) failed
    [Sat Jan 12 15:59:20 2008] [error] ap_proxy_connect_backend disabling worker for (localhost)
    [Sat Jan 12 15:59:20 2008] [error] proxy: AJP: failed to make connection to backend: localhost

    Any help will be much appreciated!

    Hello again. Just thought I'd update you with the solution to my little problem. It turns out that a load module (proxy_ajp.conf) for my Apache webserver contained the following line:

    ProxyPass /blog ajp://localhost:8009/blog

    Why it was there I have no idea (actually, I think I recall asking my son to load Tomcat for me - he made a few tweaks of which this was one but it never worked), but the implication was that I should rename my folder from 'blog' to something else for it all to work. And so it did!!
    And I've commented the line out for the future. Hurrah!
