You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
So, I was fucking around with some plugins and themes and stuff, trying to get my comics to look good on my blog (I failed, and decided that a separate WP install was the best way to make them readable) and along the way I messed something up, I guess because my site is borked.
At one point it was Totes Borked. The whole thing was completely inaccessible because in troubleshooting for one of the themes, I had found a thread instructing me to change the URL settings in my WP dashboard and that was a mistake. With a little help from some other googled threads, I got that fixed, and learned that editing my PHP databases manually is not so scary, but at some point something else got messed up.
If you try to go to http://manawaker.com your browser (or rather all of my browsers and the browsers of others I've asked to check for me) will try to download my index.php. It only happens if you try to go to the base domain. Going anywhere else works fine, even http://manawaker.com/site-home/ which is where you are supposed to end up after going to http://manawaker.com is working just peachy, but anyone who just types the address can't currently get to my site. This is bothersome.
I found several WP threads which claim that this is caused by an errant redirect line in the .htaccess file, but I've checked that file, and it contains no errant lines. In fact it matches the ideal configuration listed in the WP wiki.
I've hunted to my limit, and can find no solutions to this issue that don't tell me that my .htaccess needs to be fixed, so now I'm at a loss. Can someone(s) help me troubleshoot this further?
