domain name forward brings up wp-config.php error

  • Author

    I have a blog set up on my own personal webserver, the blog works just fine when navigating to the exact URL of the site, however I have a domain name that I want to associate it to from GoDaddy, I set the forwarding to go exactly to the correct URL so it should just take me to the blog, but instead it gives me the following error: “There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started…”, but I can put the same URL it’s forwarding to in the address bar and it comes up just fine. This doesn’t make any sense to me as it should just forward to the appropriate address. Any ideas?
