Sorry to hear you are only getting a list of items when visiting your site. The reason you get a list is because there is no index file for your site. The index file the server looks for must be named one of the following (it looks for them in the order listed): index.htm, index.html, index.php, default.htm.

If none of those files exist, then a list of files will display on the screen. Note that the filenames are not capitalized, so Index.htm would not work since it uses a capital letter.

Make sure your first page is named properly (index.html is best for HTML files and index.php for php files) and your site should display.

Kindest Regards,
