Getting it to work with an existing site

Getting it to work with an existing site

Ok, I have it installed, configured, all of that. Here's my problem.... I am installing this in an existing site. I have added

<?php include "cms/Connections/localhost.php"; ?>
<?php include "cms/WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php"; ?>

to all of the pages as well as <?php echo WA_getCMSContent($database_localhost, $localhost,"home", "main"); ?> to the body (replacing home with whatever page it happens to be and leaving the main because all of the pages have an editable region named main).

So far the only page I can get to show up in the admin is the test page I created while logged into the cms on the site. So my question is how do I get this existing site to show up in this cms so my client can get in and start working with it? This is definitely not what I was expecting at all, and I even asked pre-sale questions, yet... well you know.
