Normal to have THREE index.php files as part of WordPress theme?? (3 posts)

    I am showing THREE index files uploaded to my server for the THEME Tulip Time_5

    Again ALL index.php but landing in different areas.

    I thought there could only be ONE? Won't these cause confusion for the server and WP?

    Below are the paths for each


    File size 6,032

    / this is the root directory

    /* Short and sweet */
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);

    File size 95

    In wp/admin/

    // Silence is golden.

    File size 32

    If these are in the wrong place or a couple of those mentioned should NOT be there at all, could this have to do with my constant cannot connect to server issues I am having with WP or my host????

    Because otherwise I am still grasping here for straws.

    This is a brand new install, only been up a week.

    Almost correct ;)
    One for every directory/folder.
    And except the index file in your tulip-whatever theme folder the others are part of the core WP files and you shouldn't mess around with any of them.
    You are able to make enough mess by altering your theme files... so you should keep yourself away from the core WP files!
