    Try adding:

    DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm

    to the top of your root WP .htaccess file.

    I don’t have a root WP .htaccess file

    Was it suppose to install?

    this code is in the index.php file:

    define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, true);

    /** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
    require(‘./wp-blog-header.php’);

    does this look right? I am not familiar with ./ before a file name.

    Not via WordPress but could be present on some servers. ensure that your FTP client is configured to show all files, though, as .htaccess files are often hidden by default.

    If you’re quite sure than no such file exists, simply create an .htaccess file and add the line I suggested above. Then upload it to your WordPress folder.

    Didn’t work, generated a 500 error code.

    Then ask your hosts for assistance.

    OK, thank you for you time.
