Nothing I am doing in WordPress is showing up in real time.

  • Answered
I am editing my website in WordPress and none of it is coming live on my site. I installed a temporary theme that just says under construction with "Site Publisher" and that is the only thing I can see. I would like to know what I need to do in order to see what I am doing in WordPress and then how to fully activate it when I am ready to go "live" with the WordPress site.

Thank you!

Thank you for your question about WordPress not showing up on your domain as you expected. I'm happy to help you work through the issue. The Site Publisher in cPanel created a file called index.html. This file shows up first so even though WordPress is there, it doesn't show up. By renaming the file to index.html.old, it forces the WordPress website to show. I've already done this for you.

If you want to change it back, go into cPanel. Find the File Manager option. Select the public_html folder. Then find the file index.html.old and rename it to index.html. This will return the maintenance page.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks!
