  • 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:
    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

    well, durn it … those links worked for a bit …. but now, they take me to wp_admin ??? help!! 😉

    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.
