Problem viewing website

Post by NarellanProbus » Mon Mar 11, 2019 4:14 am

I have changed from a Serif website program to this one so I deleted all of the previous files and uploaded the new ones. The FTP test states that it was all OK sending files to public html however when I viewed the site online there was a vertical list of files only. When I clicked to view the site from the 'publish' panel on the program the website address came up correctly but with.php on the end. That showed the website as I expected it to look but the public dont see it that way.
Log after deleting whole website and just uploading 1 file which showed a vertical list. I have had to delete it all.

The home page should be named 'index' (lowercase), not "Index". Otherwise the server will not recognize it as a landing page.

See also, Menu -> Page -> Error reports.
