Support » Installing WordPress » Question about putting WP in root directory

  • Hi,
    I’m doing a new site for a customer. I set up a few basic pages with SSI just to get things going, but I want to use WP.

    The site is on BlueHost and they have a tool to install WP. I’d like to install WP in my root directory. I’m wondering, can I put it in there and still keep my index.shtml as the home page until I’m ready to switch to the WP content?

    I’m thinking I can prep the WP content while the index.shtml page is the home page and when I’m ready, I can just remove the index.shtml file and then WP would load as the home page.

    Should that work?

    Thanks
