General Information
I started my website with wordpress then switched to dreamweaver. I have uploaded all the files but the wordpress version still shows and the index page for the dreamweaver site comes up page not found. Do I have to uninstall the wordpress page?

Thank you for your question on publishing with DreamWeaver. The main page of your site is determined by the server in the following order index.htm, index.html, and index.php. This means it will display index.html if it exists, even if index.php is there.

WordPress uses index.php so if DreamWeaver creates index.htm or index.html, then it should display. If it creates index.php, then it should overwrite the WordPress version of that file. In either case, as long as your site was uploaded to the right place, it should display.

You may want to clear your browser cache as it can sometimes stick and not display the most recent changes. This is fairly common.

Although you do not have to uninstall WordPress in order for your DreamWeaver site to work, it is considered good policy to do so as it removes files that are no longer being used.

Kindest Regards,

Hi Scott,

Thanks for the answer. I cleared out all the wordpress files but it doesn't find the index.html file instead puts up a webpage "this website is under construction". I deleted all the webpages sitting in the main directory except for index.html but still won't work.

Sorry to hear you're still having trouble. Have you tried clearing your browser cache?

I've cleared the cache and still no good. It doesn't seem to be able to locate the index.html page. When I type that in, it comes up page not found.

Hello Kbennet,

Try deleting the default.htm file in the folder holding your files. You can use the cPanel File Manager to look at the files. The "under construction" page is that file.

If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.
