This message shows up when the default document for a directory doesn't exist, and the directory doesn't allow listing the contents.

If you try browsing a specific page does it work? If yes, then you have to check the IIS configuration and change the default document list to add the page that should be coming up first.

As for the database thing, I will pass to someone else...

Setting the default document in IIS to "index.php" should fix it for you.

As freitasm mentioned, you'll need to add the document type to the list of file extensions IIS looks for to display. By default, IIS doesn't display PHP documents - which is what every page is build around in WordPress.

I'm not too sure of the instructions for WHS as I've only dealt with WS2003 and earlier.

Windows Home Server is built on SBS 2003 and runs standard IIS 6.0. Anything for Windows Server related to IIS works just the same.

Have you installed PHP as well?

Have a look at this page and it will tell you how to add PHP to the default document type list, too.
