Cannot begin Installation Process


#1

I have uploaded the Piwik files to my FTP, and try to access the URL via www.mysite.com/piwik and it does not work. I have tried many combinations of phrasing and tried accessing via Explorer and the ftp URL. Nothing works and I get this same message:

“Directory Listing Denied
This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed.”

I cannot install at all, no Piwik page comes up anywhere. Please help. C

Try yoursite.com. If that works you have to tell your webserver to also look for a index.php file if a directory is requested. For Apache you could use something like the following in your httpd.conf:


<IfModule dir_module>
    DirectoryIndex index.html index.php
</IfModule>

or in the configuration file of your virtual host something like


DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

Otherwise you should try to figure out where your ftp root directory is located relative to the web root.
