  • Are you sure you put your files in the root directory?

    I ask because when I stick /index.php on the end of your domain I get:

    “The document name you requested (/index.php) could not be found on this server. However, we found documents with names similar to the one you requested. Available documents: /index.html (common basename)”

    If WordPress is installed there should be an index.php file.

    Sometimes it’s easier to delete everything and start over, step by step, than find the problem.

    I have changed install folder from my root hosting to /eastgrinsteadweb/ and added a fresh wordpress install in there, but still the same issue?

    Thanks for the help it is now working
