themes not showing on localhost

  • Noob alert.

    I can’t seem to get any themes to show locally. I’ve installed and activated a custom theme, but even the defaults don’t show. I get the “It works” page no matter what when I visit my local site.

    I’m using Ubuntu 13.04. I installed WordPress and all necessary server components. I’ve set this up before in the past and it “just worked” from what I recall.

    Not getting any error messages. I just don’t see any changes after activating a theme.

  • Did you install it directly into /var/www ? If so, try to remove the index.html file or add the default .htaccess file of WordPress:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress
