Localhost install – wp-admin works, but frontpage is text only
I’m new to performing WordPress installs, and have just made my first attempt to install it onto my localhost. This is also the first time I’ve set up a local server.
I have successfully installed Apache, PHP, and MySql onto my Windows machine. Each is manually installed into a unique directory, and I have also successfully installed WordPress into a directory… but wp only partially works.
I can log into wp-admin and the backend looks like it should. Everything is arranged with graphics and everything works.
However, when I visit the front end of the site, it’s just plain text. I get a title that says “Index of /localhost-site-name”, followed by a bulleted list that includes:
and so on.
Since the back end looks and works the way it should, is there a localhost installation step that I’ve missed to cause the main index page not not display everything properly?
