Support » Installing WordPress » Post Installation Admin Login Failure

  • I have recently tried to install WordPress with a new host having installed it before with an old host. I can get through the two step installation propper, but when I try to log in with the admin and password that the second install step applies it always fails. After if fails I geg a 404 message if I try to access the login.php page again.

    The URL is .

    I have tried to fix the problem by creating and deleting MySQL databases a few times, and re-uploading the wordpress files.

    On a final note, I had to change the config file from local host, if that might be causing the problem (I have never had to do that before.)

    Any help, or better yet PLEASE help!

  • Yeah, after a more detailed look at the FAQ I have found my answer, Sorry, I feel kind of irresponsible for posting now… but thank you to who (or whom) ever wrote the FAQ section!

    I am having the same problem. I installed WP through Dotster, and everything seemed to go well. Then when I tried to log in, I received the following message:

    “Directory listing is denied

    “The Web server is configured not to display a list of the contents of this directory.

    “Please try the following:

    “Contact the Web site administrator if you believe this directory should allow browsers to display a list of its contents.

    “HTTP Error 403.14 – Forbidden: Directory listing denied.
    Internet Information Services (IIS)”

    Where is the FAQ that helped you?

    Make sure your host has configured “index.php” as a proper directory index page.
