Can't access password-protected pages

I can’t access password-protected pages on my site, I get the message:

“There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started.”

But I didn’t assign such a file, or anything to do with WordPress. I’m supposed to get a pop-up window, prompting the user to enter a password.

I’d appreciate any help with this.


Can you access the folder “protected” It looks as if an installation of WordPress started there. You should just be able to delete any wordpress folders and files from there.

Great – thank you!
