I’m not sure where I went wrong.
I had a vB forum hosted elsewhere previously… I backed up the db, moved to DH, uploaded the files, created the mysql db and the user, edited the config so it knows where to find the new db, and then uploaded the db data.
All is fine and well, I can access the vB admin panel.
However this is what I don’t get: I am supposed to be able to access the forums by going to the root of my domain, ie. http://www.mydomain.com. But no… I get a blank white page. I have to manually type www.mydomain.com/index.php into the browser to get the index to load.
What could be causing this?
I recently installed wordpress using the one click install, and it said it was going to have all php run as cgi, or something. Could that be it?
