profile page list files in wordpress folder (3 posts)

    I'm using WordPress with the following:

    Apache 2.x
    Xp Home
    mysql 5.0
    php 5

    I followed the directions to create a blog and it said everything went thru fine. I checked the tables in the mysql db and say all the tables were created ok.
    I get a random password for admin, so Im assuming php, sql and apache was setup ok.

    Now when i try to login, instead of the profile page, the browser lists all the files in the wp_admin folder.

    Any ideas on what might be happening?

    in the wp_config.php, i set up db_host as localhost, even though im hosting apache on port 8080. The installer barfed on me when i specified the port, so I left it just as localhost

    I would appreciate any suggestions you might have. I'm really new at this.

    Thanks for your help.

    you dont have index.php set up as a default file.

    using apache?

    put this in an .htaccess at the root of your install:

    DirectoryIndex index.php
