iPage Help – Installing WordPress

Question:

I was going to use wordpress to make my site but then it didn’t work. I selected my site editor to FileManager/FTP and when I edit my Home.html (i deleted it then re-uploaded it) nothing happens. I have to type www.xxxxxx.com/Home.html to access the new page.

How do you set an html file as your homepage?
the original Home.html was the actual home page and it was a capital H

Answer:

The Home.html page is the under construction page. It needs to be deleted and it needs to be replace with a real home page called index.html.

OR, you can install WordPress. In that case, it will install and index.php file and that will load your blog.
