I'm setting up a new site, using php pages. The index page is Index.php. In file manager, that is the only index page I see but the default 'coming soon' page is displayed when browsing to the site. My page displays when input.

How do I change the default page?

Hi lphillips,

The question you have is regarding <strong>Directory Index</strong> - a setting that controls which page is loaded first (such as index.php or index.htm or index.html).

I recommend reviewing the following article for further help:
<a href=''>What directory should I put my files in?</a>

On that page, there is a section labeled <strong>What file loads first? - The Directory Index</strong>, and that should have the information you're looking for.

If that doesn't help, please respond back with more specific information, and we'll be happy to review further.
