Plesk message after preview

  1. Hi,
    I just installed GForms and created a simple contact form. All went well. Installation Status is OK. It was easy to create the form. Then I wanted to preview and got a Domain Default Page, see below. Should I contact my provider? What should I ask him? Please help. Thx.

    Yes, please contact your host and tell them what isn't working correctly. I haven't seen or heard of this type of error before, so I can't even give you information on what to tell them except that your server is not configured correctly to show the preview page of a form you've created. That is really strange... Server caching? Maybe something wrong with PHP? Do pages on your blog work correctly? htaccess issues? It could be a myriad of things...

  3. I contacted my host. They think the setup of the blog is the cause. The site is installed following these instructions:
    When we move index.php to /wp and modify the include to wp-blog-header.php instead of ./wp/wp-blog-header.php the preview does work.
    So we think this must be a problem in GravityForms, using a wrong relative path or something.
    Note: the form itself on a page works fine: see All other pages on my blog and other plugins work fine too. It's just the preview...

    I have WordPress installed in it's own directory following those same WP instructions and Gravity Forms preview works fine for me. 99% of the time this problem occurs when you move the index.php and/or .htaccess files when you should have copied them.

    Copy (NOT MOVE!) the index.php and .htaccess files from the WordPress directory into the root directory of your site (Blog address). The .htaccess file is invisible, so you may have to set your FTP client to show hidden files. If you are not using pretty permalinks, then you may not have a .htaccess file.
