I’ve recently joined the academy and also bought the CX Pro package and downloaded the canvas child theme. I’ve had quite a bit of experience with wordpress admin but very limited knowledge of building websites.
Anyway, I recently installed wordpress on one of my domains following your excellent video instructions (I have a business account with Heart Internet). I got to the point of having to choose whether to install wordpress in my full url – http://www.mysite.co.uk or just in mysite.co.uk. There was a third option to install into a temporary url consisting of an IP no.mysite.co.uk.
I chose the first option (www.mysite.co.uk) and everything went well and wordpress installed perfectly. I changed the settings to make it a website rather than a blog, installed CX Pro and Woocommerce and built my first webpage. I then clicked on’Visit Site’ but instead of seeing the site I just got the following message:
‘Welcome to Your New Hosting Package
This is your index.html page
Please replace this when you upload your website’
I went back into Settings General and changed the url to just mysite.co.uk for both the wordpress and the site address, clicked Visit Site and there was the site – so…
Did i do something wrong when I installed wordpress and should i try to re-install or is this something I need to resolve with Heart Internet?
Apologies for such a long question but I would appreciate your advice.
