Can't set homepage or publish site

Hi,
I'm creating a page at dharmawillingjourney.epizy.com. I have created three pages with a home page and can view it by 'visiting site' within wordpress, but if I go straight to the published page in a browser address bar then it is the 'lets make something awesome' page. I searched support and think I need to set the homepage, but how? I looked with ftp, httpdocs had a file callex index2.html, which I renamed index.html. /wp has a file callex index.php and if I try and download it it says there is nothing there.

Thanks for any help.

  • your homepage is http://dharmawillingjourney.epizy.com/wp/

    reason is default dir wp https://infinityfree.net/support/how-to-install-wordpress/

    so you must redirect there , etc.

  • Ok, so I need to redirect from the wp to presumably the folder above it, though index.php is in the wp folder. That is what I tried to download (with the intention to move it) but the ftp app said it couldn't be found.
    So, what do I need to redirect, and how? Thanks again for any help.

  • If you just installed the script, you can just delete the old installation, go back to Softaculous and install it again with the right directory. Double and triple check the "Directory" field in Softaculous, it should be empty if you don't want a subdirectory!

  • Thank you. I'll go try now...

  • I stopped to see how you progressed

    when server not find an index file like index.php or index.html it showing the contents of the directory (hack attacks & revealing important information).

    put this line in .htaccess file inside of htdocs folder
    Options -Indexes

    You have just to edit the script. In the root directory you can see a file named ".htdocs". Copy the file to the folder "htdocs" .Open it and Delete all the text and write:-

    DirectoryIndex="example.html"

    In the above code replace the "example.html" with name of your home page.
