I want to create a WP multisite to replace an existing site built in html.
I need the existing html pages to be publically displayed until the new WP site is complete.
I understand it is tricky to build a multisite locally and prefer to build it live as my skills are limited.
If I install WP on the domain, will the site's index.html file override the WP index.php? Or will I need to do a temporary redirect to the index.html within WP to ensure that this home page displays?
The only thing is the html domain name doesn't have index.html at the end of it.
Is this the correct way to do it? Your help is appreciated.
