I'm using Win XP SP2, Apache 2.latest, php 4.4, mysql 4.1.14. I've installed WP 1.5.2, and configured it. It appears to work, except that moving between pages fails and shows just an index in the browser instead of WP content.
I'm not sure about the Apache config, but my website works [basic html content] and phpBB and PostNuke, also installed under same site, all work normally. Along the way I was getting 403 errors from WP pages, when all the other sites worked normally. Not sure why WP should be so different. Here's an apache log message from the 403 errors. Never saw these from PostNuke.
<b> [Sat Aug 27 15:53:26 2005] [error] [client 192.168.1.12] Directory index forbidden by rule: C:/wwwSite/wordpress/, referer: http://galepc/wordpress/wp-admin/themes.php?activated=true
Now I'm not getting errors. Just indices if URL ends in slash. If I use /index.php then the pages work. But WP links fail between pages.
