HTTP Error 403.14 - Forbidden (11 posts)

    Hi,
    I am new to wordpress and I could use some help.
    Perhaps it's very simple.

    The installation went fine- but I cannot access the /wp-admin page.
    I installed the app to /blog. When I log-in (blog/wp-admin/) I get this message:

    HTTP Error 403.14 - Forbidden
    The Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directory.

    Any help with what to do here?
    Does this relate to "default document" not being specified?
    I am not sure how to change this. I have read through other similar posts and have been trying all day without any success.

    I am working with OS X 10.4.11

    Thanks for any help.

    What .htaccess files do you have in root? Is there an .htaccess file in wp-admin?

    Have you tried using /blog/wp-login.php?

    yes, after entering the password, I get the error:

    HTTP Error 403.14 - Forbidden
    The Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directory.

    using, /index.php I do see the page.
    clicking on Meta/Site Admin to edit the page returns the same error.

    Can you try re-uploading the wp-admin folder?

    It sounds like your webserver is not accepting index.php as a default document. Are you able to get support from your web hosting provider?
