    On that site this URL http://www.bedford-ny-real-estate.com/blog/ works.

    Also you have a index.html file in your root. It’s getting hit before index.php.

    Rename that index.html or delete it and try http://www.bedford-ny-real-estate.com/

    That should work then.

    I deleted the index.html file and now i get error message.

    Any advice?? I really need to get this back up and am regretting the upgrade. Thanks!!!

    plaese help someone!

    I checked mysql and made sure it was set to correct page.

    Now, it says:

    Directory has no index file.

    Browsing this site or directory without an index file is prohibited.
    If you are the site’s webmaster, you can remedy this problem by creating a default HTML page with one of the following names:

    index.html
    index.htm
    default.htm
    Default.htm
    home.html
    Home.chtml
    NOTE: Filenames are case sensitive, i.e., Home.html is not the same as home.html

    I just looked, even the /blog/ no longer works, getting a 500 error message. Just removing that file should not have caused that.

    Can you re-upload the wordpress files? That 500 error should not have happened.

    why does my site still sort of work under http://www.bedford-ny-real-estate.com/wordpress? I didnt save my files, but i think i can get this back b/c it did a similar thing when i originally installed.

    Question- can i reupload wordpress w/o losing my content? if i remove the other files, is the content file where the blog info and other are located? i only had this blog for a few weeks so its not the end of the world, but my homepage had a lot of links etc since i use this site as a CMS and dont want to have to redo all that. Thx!

    RRTeam,

    If you just re-upload the WordPress files then your posts should not be effected. You’re posts are stored in your MYSQL database.

    I do not think that will work though. You are getting errors on the web server.

    What did your host provider say? If this is your WordPress install at http://www.bedford-ny-real-estate.com/index.php then you should get some output not just a 500 error.

    The web server error log should say something about why it’s generating that error.

    Also when there is an index.php in the directory, that should be a valid file in replace of index.html.

    I honestly dont know what to do. They said wordpress was installed incorrectly. I feel clueless, lol. This is what my site says on the http://www.bedford-ny-real-estate.com

    Directory has no index file.

    Browsing this site or directory without an index file is prohibited.
    If you are the site’s webmaster, you can remedy this problem by creating a default HTML page with one of the following names:

    Default.htm
    home.html
    Home.chtml
    NOTE: Filenames are case sensitive, i.e., Home.html is not the same as home.html

    What would your advice be? Should i remove it completely and do a complete re-install? will i lose anything? or just reinstall upgrade again? I am redirecting my site to http://www.bedford-ny-real-estate.com, fyi, and am not using wordpress after it. I really need to get back up, any help appreciated!

    Well they’re probably right. Your WordPress is not installed correctly.

    If you have a backup of both your files and your database, and if you know and are confident you know how to restore your backup, then yes you should restore your files.

    At this point replacing your files with a fresh copy from http://wordpress.org/download/ can’t hurt. Just replacing the files will not hurt your database entries.

    Im just going to restore the whole thing to a few days ago and forget about the upgrade! my host is going to have tech support do it for me. thanks for your help.

    Was there ever a resolution to this? I am having the exact same problem, I have been trolling the forum all night and have yet to find a resolution…is any one working on this?

    I am having the same problem too and cannot find any answers. I’ve been getting the same “no directory” error from the beginning. My index.php file seems to be a blank php file…..

    I have tried unistalling and re-installing 5 times and the same exact problem is still happening. I have no idea how to view my blog, but I can “publish” from my admin area.

    If I don’t get answers soon I will use another blogging product in order to finish this for a client.

    It sounds like what’s happening is that you are downloading the entire /wordpress directory into the DOCROOT, or top level directory for your server eg:
    /home/user/yourdomain.tld/wordpress/index.php
    Your host’s server is no doubt configured with DOCROOT /home/user/yourdomain.tld, so to access wordpress you need to go to http://yourdomain.tld/wordpress. See how subdirectory on the disk map to different URLS?

    What you want to do is upload the <b>contents</b> of the wordpress directory after you unzip the package you downloaded. This puts owrdpress right at the top of DOCROOT, so http://yourdomain.tld will bring up index.php from the WP package.

    If you already have an installation in a subdirectory, don’t delete the database. Just put the files in the right place, then you’ll need to change a couple of records in the ‘options’ table in your wordpress database. On my dev machine records 1 and 34 contain the URL that WP should be accessed at.

    I have WP installed in a subdirectory called ‘blog’ already. Using http://severesocietyfilms/wordpress or http://severesocietyfilms/blog return a roadrunner error page.

    There is an index.php in my ‘blog’ directory. Where is it supposed to go?

    How do I know what URL WP should be accessed at – and how do I find my “records 1 and 34” if I don’t have an “options” table anywhere?….
