No Input File Specified on Unix/FreeBSD (2 posts)

    Last night my WP installation inexplicably stopped working - I kept getting errors related to one of my plugins, and when I tried to disable it, the whole installation went to heck. :(

    I backed up my WP database and reinstalled WP through Dreamhost's One Click Install. Because Dreamhost/WP won't allow you to install in a directory where there are already files, I had to install WP in a new directory called "Blog". However, I don't want my site to run from that directory - I want it to run from root.

    After a couple of hours of searching here and the codex, I thought I had everything figured out, but now when I try to view permalinks or archives, I get a "No input file specified" error. I understand that this is fairly common on Windows servers, but I'm not on Windows - Dreamhost runs FreeBSD.

    I haven't been able to find a solution to this, so could the problem be in my .htaccess file or somewhere else in the installation? Please help me - I switched to WP from MT because I got tired of having to babysit my installation, but this is just making me more frustrated. :(

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    I have this problem too..
    Because 1click install cant work, I just dl-ed the files and put it in the main dir. Now it shows up nothing but "No input file specified."

    Grr.. why is that?
