    I just installed today and when you go to http://www.shad0wpact.com I get: Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access / on this server.

    Apache/2.2 Server at shad0wpact.com Port 80

    When I go to shad0wpact.com/wordpress it looks all messed up and when I try to log in it says:
    Not Found

    The requested URL /wp-login.php was not found on this server.

    Apache/2.2 Server at shad0wpact.com Port 80

    Any suggestions?

    That's a pretty common issue. You've installed your WordPress files in the sub-directory /wordpress. That means when you changed the urls in your General settings without first moving the files to the root of your domain, you prevent WordPress from looking in the correct spot for all of its files. The 403 error at root is probably because your .htaccess file prevents casual browsing. That's a good thing. In a nutshell: Your site is at shad0wpact.com/wordpress and you told WordPress it should look for it at shad0wpact.com instead.

    You need to fix the urls so they point back to the sub-directory in order to get back in. Here's a couple ways you can fix that. Changing The Site URL

    Afterwards, if you were thinking about moving your site into the root of your domain, or of leaving the files where they are and serving it from root, here's some help on how to do that. Moving WordPress On Your Existing Server

    You're going to want to look all of those directions over well, before jumping right in. There's a couple steps that can trip you up if you get them out of order.

    I'm getting a similar error

    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access /wp-admin/ on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    WordPress is installed in the same directory, I have not tried to change directories or move anything. All I did was follow the steps to do a manual update.

    Your issue and solution will not be the same then. You should start your own thread and post a link to your site so someone can take a look.
