Ok, I'm totally new to working with WordPress, PHP AND MySQL.
That said, PHP 5, PHPMyAdmin and MySQL are all succesfully installed on our server. I have uploaded the WordPress installation folder into a subdirectory of one of the many domains we host on our server.
I modified the wp-config.php file according to the instructions on the WordPress website. Then I attempted to install via the internet browser.
I am able to get through the steps in the browser of naming the WordPress blog, entering in my e-mail address, being assigned a username and password (username is 'admin' and the password is automatically generated with lots of odd characters.) It tells me the installation is complete. When I then click on the link to login, I use the username and password it assigned me, and at that point I get an HTTP 403 Forbidden error.
I have cleared the db tables and gone through this installation process three or four times now with the same result. Each time it generates a new password.
I know I'm entering in the password correctly because I'm simply copying and pasting it from one place to another.
Any ideas on what might be going wrong?
Thanks in advance!
