  • You have place holder file in your root check if you have index.html if so delete the file as you can only have one index file and wordpress use index.php

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    I only have one index.php and that’s in the htdocs folder along with the rest of the wordpress install.
    The top level (/) has two folders

    cgi-bin (empty) and htdocs which contains the wordpress installation.

    Any help would be fantastic.


    do you have any file that is name index or default.html as when I go to your domain name i get this

    Coming soon

    Please check back soon.

    that is place holder file

    Thanks for getting back govpatel.

    No – I don’t have such a file. If you click on the second link (in my first post) it actually takes you to a sub page of the site which displays just fine. It seems only the main URL is messed up. I can access posts if I type in the long URL to them directly. I can get into admin etc etc. The only thing that’s missing is the main page.

    I am using Filezilla and have selected “force show hidden files” – but there are definately no index or default HTML files on any level of the domain.

    Would a total re-install help? – I’m really lost with this one. I have installed wordpress over 300 times to sites hosted all over the world in the past 4 years (mostly fantastico or similar but dozens of FTP installs as well) never had anything like this happen before.

    Tnanks again


    Darn it – it just started working – I did nothing?
    Maybe the provider hyad to flick a switch or something..

    Thanks for the help. I’ll be back if it messes up again – for the life of me I don’t know what happened there.


    may be your domain name had not propagated fully
