WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I just installed a Wordpress 3.2 app on my webfaction account. When I go to the index.php page, I get the standard generic new wordpress page, but without any theme info -- there are no images and, seemingly, no css, no default theme stuff. When I click login, I see a blank page, and the source is as follows:

<html> 
<head> 
<title>(my site title)</title> 
<meta (my usual meta info)/> 
</head> 
<frameset rows="100%"> 
<frame src="(the root directory of the new wp app)" title="'(my site title)'" frameborder="0" noresize="noresize"/> 
<noframes> 
<body>
<h1>(my site title)</h1>
<p><a href="(the root directory of the new wp app)">http://(my website name)/</a></p>
</body>
</noframes> 
</frameset> 
</html>

Any thoughts on why the usual generic starter WordPress stuff isn't loading for me? Especially why I can't get the login page to load?

I tried reinstalling, but that didn't seem to work.

Did you try setting the Site URL setting as outlined in that document? The official WordPress docs on this are here,
