I ran into a problem while installing WordPress on a client’s website that was hosted on web.com. After successfully installing WordPress and hooking it up the database I tried to login to the WordPress, but got the following error:
HTTP Error 403.14 – Forbidden
The Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directory.
Not exactly what I like to see when I install WordPress. The error gave some input:
Most likely causes:
A default document is not configured for the requested URL, and directory browsing is not enabled on the server.
After some looking around I figured out that the solution is to contact your web host support, and to tell them to change the web.config file. What they need to do is allow, or add index.php as a default file (in my case it was set to index.html and index.php wasn’t working).
