Support » Fixing WordPress » View page not working

  • Hey, im new to wordpress and looking for help. Im running Ubuntu on my server. The installation worked a treat. But when i go and preview the page i just get the apache front screen – “
    It works!

    This is the default web page for this server.

    The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.”

    I have no idea whats gone wrong but hopefully its simple to resolve!
    Thanks,
    Aled.

  • Site URL please?
    Also paste the list of files under your web root folder.

    Hey, thanks for the reply.
    I cant give you the site url because its on a local network
    Here is whats in my root –

    aquota.group bin dev fastboot lib mnt proc run selinux sys usr
    aquota.user boot etc home media opt root sbin srv tmp var

    Thanks,
    Aled.

    Okay that looks like the user home directory, I am interested in the web root directory. (Try /var/www)?

    When i type that command in it says – “Is a directory”.

    ah ye, here it is –
    index.html wp-admin wp-cron.php wp-settings.php
    index.php wp-blog-header.php wp-includes wp-signup.php
    license.txt wp-comments-post.php wp-links-opml.php wp-trackback.php
    readme.html wp-config-sample.php wp-load.php xmlrpc.php
    wordpress wp-config.php wp-login.php
    wp-activate.php wp-content wp-mail.php

    Ok that’s what I wanted to know.

    Try renaming index.html to index-default.html.

    Yes! thank you. Saved my day!
    Thanks,
    Aled.

    No problem.
