Support » Installing WordPress » Alternative to using index.php

  • I want to run a client’s website with a “coming soon” on the home page. I have created this file and called it index.html

    I then installed WordPress, but whatever I do it always defaults to index.html

    I have tried http://pinewoodelectricalcontrols.co.uk/index.php but the page is always redirected back to http://pinewoodelectricalcontrols.co.uk (/index.html)

    Is there anything in the settings I can do to force the server to prefer index.html BUT to honour http://pinewoodelectricalcontrols.co.uk/index.php ?

    I have tried changing the settings > general but however I set the home page and site urls they don’t fix the problem.

    I have read in previous posts that the best way to do this is to install WordPress into its own folder, but I don’t want to have to change all the links when the site goes live to take out /WordPress/

    Is the problem with the server always going to HTML regardless?
