    turned a friend on to WordPress ... so, trying to help them i installed WordPress 1.2 here...
    all went well, but now something weird... (can't find something like this in the search of forums ... perhaps i'm not searching for the right thing)
    it is a BBQ site, so don't get turned off by the directory name ;)
    i installed it here: http://lostmountainbbq.com/samsbutt/
    now, when i navigate to that directory with Firefox and IE i get a listing of the directory ... if I add the index.php all is well ...
    also, when I click on 'login' or 'register' it takes me to the directories ... list of files ... not to the file
    any help? is this a CHMOD thing?

    well, i just went in and hard coded the links ... but any help down the road is still appreciated ... just figured that this was the easiest way to get it up and running ... if only temporarily

    You're probably still logged in, when I try, I get the login screens.

    Thanks for checking ... Well, I cleared the cache and rebooted ... but it still happens for me. Don't know what the deal is...

    Is 'index.php' recognised by the host as an index ? It could be it's looking only for index.html but allowing you to see a full file listing as well ? (The latter not being that good)

    Your host needs to be set up to use index.php as a directory index. In Apache you can add this to your .htaccess file:
    DirectoryIndex index.html
    More info:
    If this doesn't make sense to you, bug your host.
