Support » Installing WordPress » No Files in Domain Root Directory

  • This is my first website design attempt. I thought I was going crazy because I wrote pages and published them but my domain showed a “Site is Under Development” page. I could view the pages at domain/pagename/ though. I found out the problem is that I have no files under my domain root directory. I did a one-step install of WordPress through my host. Did I do something completely wrong and how do I fix it please? Do I backup the WP files to my computer then upload the WP index.php to the domain root directory? Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Site url?

    aglawmn.com pages can be viewed at aglawmn.com/home/ etc

    Thanks

    it looks like you can fix this a couple of ways.

    The easiest of which might be to change the Site Address (URL) setting on the General Settings page to aglawmn.com/home/

    The second thing would be to simply move everything from /home up a directory to the root level. However with some hosts’ 1-click installers this could cause problems. You would need to run a search and replace of the old (/home) url to the new url (without the/home) though.

    If you go this route, be sure to backup your database before you start, then back it up again.
