Support » Installing WordPress » localhost and dir

  • plenitude


    Hi all, I’ve just installed wordpress but I got a problem with the directories.. when I try to do almost anything link post, edit.. a message and then click on submit button I obtain the IE error page of the page not found. Another problem is that when I start wordpress i.e. typing http://localhost/wordpress of the address bar the index page doesn’t start automatically but I can see the home dir (wordpress) with all the files listed.
    Thanks for you help.

    It sounds like your webserver hasn’t been configured to use index.php as a DirectoryIndex.

    If you haven’t yet, try following these instructions:



    I’ve tried to change the http.conf file of Apache but it doesn’t work. But in this file there isn’t the line

    #LoadModule rewrite_module modules/

    there’s a similar line that is..

    LoadModule rewrite_module modules/ApacheModuleRewrite.dll

    so I’ve changed this one.
    Once the browser opens the home dir it shows the root of wordpress with all the files listed and in the same page the home page of wp without the css stylesheet.

    What Windows operating system are you using ?
    What mysql/php/apache setup are you using ?



    Win2000 sp3, Apache/1.3.14 (Win32), php version 4.3.4. don’t know where get mysql version..
    I’ve found and change the mod_rewrite in Apache so the admin section works well but all the links from here to wordpress folder don’t work every time page not found.
