  • i have .htaccess and it is pointing at index.php

    What exactly is in your .htaccess file?

    I’d delete the .htaccess file, login to your admin and update your permalink structure.

    DirectoryIndex Index.php

    i have tryed this also, went ahead and did it again and it still does the same thing.

    below is a link to an image of what my theme preview looks like, im at a loss, i dont know what the problem is…


    DirectoryIndex index.php

    thank you,

    but it still does not work, it seems i can get to all the admin areas, they function as expected, i just cant view the site. index.php and various other pages either lead me to a directory listing or a blank white page…

    actually it seems like anything that has to do with the theme doesnt work.

    I think there’s a problem in your server config/setup.

    good advice

    i installed it in the default server in a sub directory and it works so there is something wrong with my virtual servers config and i cant figure it out. if i do though i will be sure to post it here…


    i dont get it does anyone see anything wrong with this config?

    # (/etc/apache2/sites-available/
    <VirtualHost *>

    DocumentRoot /var/www/site5/htdocs
    <Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    <Directory /var/www/site5/htdocs>
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    allow from all

    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /var/www/site5/cgi-bin/
    <Directory “/var/www/site5/cgi-bin”>
    AllowOverride None
    Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

    ErrorLog /var/www/site5/logs/error.log

    # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
    # alert, emerg.
    LogLevel warn

    CustomLog /var/www/site5/logs/access.log combined
    ServerSignature On

    Alias /doc/ “/var/www/site5/doc/”
    <Directory “/var/www/site5/doc/”>
    Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks

    it works now, i just moved wordpress to the default host and my other site to the virtual host. still dont understand why didnt work in the virtual host…
