    I have a a domain (boborr.co.uk) which is hosted by 1and1.co.uk so followed the instructions to install WordPress in the root directory. When I finally succeeded and got to my dashboard, I discovered that the Twenty Eleven theme was not installed. On trying to see a sample page I was redirected to boborr.co.uk/defaultsite. What’s going on?

    Remove the index.html file in root, leave the index.php file.

    Thanks. Pretty obvious when you think about it. It’s been a few years since I built a website.
