    Hi everyone

    As you might have guessed i'm completely new to wordpress. I have recently purchased my first domain


    I installed wordpress and have been able to start the building process. However every time i try to view my site I just get an under construction page.

    Not sure of the next step. any help would be great :)

    Yes there would be a index.html in your root folder try going inside cpanel and within file manager to remove that file or using ftp access to delete or rename index.html

    Donot rename index.php file

    Site should show up.

    FTP into your site (or whatever file management application your host provides) & delete the index.html file in the domain's root folder.

    index.html file in your root folder needs to be removed, otherwise all requests to your domain with be directed to it and it has the "under construction" text on it.

    I found the index.html file in my sample folder, within the root folder. I deleted this, and it's still showing 'this is site is under construction' Help!

    I resolved this by deleting the home.html file too.

    Hi I see you fixed that! But just in case other people read this: Sometimes, when you just bought the hosting account, it takes up to 48 hours before the registrar internationally sets your site to "live" so it shows up once the Name Server is activated..
