Installation ok then blank screen (4 posts)

    I have just installed WordPress on a PC running Vista Ultimate with the latest MySQL. The installation went fine until the screen at which I should have seen my blog. Instead I got a blank screen. The database tables appear to have been created correctly. I have no idea what's wrong and would appreciate any suggestions. Where do I go from here?

    An update on this: I have found that the problem is that dirpath\index.php is not being displayed. If I click on the file manually (in the blog or wp-admin directory) all is well.

    I am using Windows Vista Ultimate, MySQL 5.0.37, MySQL Administrator 1.2.10, PhpMyAdmin 2.10.0.2 and IIS 7.0.

    Presumably I've done something wrong with IIS. Advice welcome still. Thanks.

    Server support is a bit beyond where we normally go, but it sounds like you just need to configure IIS to look for index.php as a default page.

    OK, I solved it. You're right. I'd already added index.php to the list of default pages but it didn't stick for some reason. Works ok now. Am just running WP on a PC, not a server. That will be later. For now am just getting familiar with it. Thanks
