Support » Installing WordPress » GoDaddy default "welcome.html" still displaying after WP install

  • Hello WordPress community –

    So here is my problem. I am a relative newbie on wordpress. I have installed the latest version to a root directory on a GoDaddy hosting account. The admin section works fine. except that when you click the blog title link on the top left it goes to a default GoDaddy “welcome.html” page. I tried changing the wordpress and site URL in the general settings tab on the admin page which then locked me out of my own admin. So uninstalled and re-installed wordpress again to the same result. I deleted the GoDaddy file from my root directory and am still having the same problem. PLEASE HELP!!!

    Thanks to anyone who can help me out with this.


    (on a side note this whole thing started when I was trying to migrate a wordpress site I had designed already to the aforementioned root directory. Which backfired severely and I lost ALL of my work!!! – If you are new to WordPress, I recommend reading EVERYTHING YOU CAN about moving a wordpress site prior to attempting it!)
