    When going to the opening page, I keep getting the create a new bolg page first (sign up). If I click on the header it goes to the home page. How can I bypass the signup page?

    What's the difference between the opening url and the link in the header?

    Did you set the home page to something in the admin area?

    Have you modified home.php?

    What webserver are you using?

    What's the OS?

    What's the domain so we can look and see what's happening?

    Sorry for the lack of information. I am on my testing server using apache on windows. Here is what the link looks like when I enter it: http://127.0.0.1/wpmu/
    I get redirected to: http://127.0.0.1/MUtest/wp-signup.php?new=

    When I click on the header, it goes to: http://localhost/wpmu/ and opens the index.php.

    I did not set the home page in the admin. At least not on purpose. I went to the admin and cannot find where to set the homepage.

    I am trying to cancel out the redirect to the sign up page so that the index page will open.

    So enter the link as http://localhost/wpmu/

    I assume you're typing it in.

    Yes I am. It still goes to http://127.0.0.1/MUtest/wp-signup.php?new=

    I even tried a new template and it still does this.
    I tried typing http://127.0.0.1/wpmu/index.php and it still goes to http://127.0.0.1/MUtest/wp-signup.php?new=

    You cannot use http://localhost/ as a URL. You'll get wierd errors like this.

    Use localhost.someting or desktop.local or anything else.

    Thanks, I went to the hosts file and this is what is there:
    127.0.0.1 *.localhost
    <virtualhost *:80>
    DocumentRoot C:/xampp/htdocs
    ServerName 127.0.0.1
    </VirtualHost>
    Can you show me where to add the information?
    Thanks Very Much.
