[resolved] New 3.7.1 installation not working (3 posts)

    I just did a totally new install of WordPress 3.7.1 in a new subdirectory on the same server where my current site exists. I changed the db table prefix but did everything else in a completely standard way. This isn't my first wordpress install--I've done dozens of them before with never a problem.

    However, this one is DOA. After running the install script and logging in, if I try to go to the Themes, Plugins, Updates, any of the Upload | Featured | Popular etc choices on install Plugins, or try to add the WordPress plugin to import the data from my existing site I'm bounced back to the login screen. This is COMPLETELY unusable without access to these admin pages. These are the same pages that are unavailable on my existing site, described in this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/page-not-found-problem-after-37-update?replies=8#post-4815549

    To be sure it isn't something on my PC, I cleared the cache, tried it it different browsers, even rebooted. Nothing helped.

    I'm completely flummoxed. I will raise this again with inMotion, although everything there seems to be working fine. I also have other sites running on different accounts on inMotion and they all work fine.

    - Check the error logs on your server for a more specific error message. If you need help locating them, ask your hosting provider to help you with that.

    Installing wordpress 3.7.1 in subdirectory
    I used the .htaccess with php,

    Step 1:(htaccess)
    errorDocument 404/404.php

    Step 2(404.php)
    Create 404.php on your main directory
    header("Location: http://www.example.com/wordpress/index.php");
    header("Location: http://www.example.com/index.php");
