refresher for setting up Powerstore 4 before going live

I have a placeholder page right now for my site. I want to leave that there while I set-up my Powerstore 4. Can you remind me how to do this?

Thanks,

Lisa

What is the name of your placeholder page?

Powerstore uses index.php for the home page. Usually you can set up a hierarchy of page names to use. So if your current placeholder is index.html it might automatically take higher precedent and it will stay until you delete it.

All you would do is make sure that the current placeholder is not named index.php and make sure it is using a name that is higher on that hierarchy... in some ISP admin sections that list is exposed and can be edited.

Thanks Ray. My index page is currently index.html. I researched godaddy. Here it the hierarchy:
This is the order of precedence for the default files on your Windows® hosting account:

1. default.asp
2. default.html
3. default.htm
4. default.aspx
5. default.php
6. default.shtml
7. default.shtm
8. index.html
9. index.htm
10. index.asp
11. index.php
12. index.shtml
13. index.shtm
14. home.html
15. home.htm
16. home.shtml
17. home.shtm
18. welcome.html
19. welcome.asp
I uploaded my index.php to test and it is unable to find my placement page. Any thoughts? I will pursue with godaddy as well. Would it work for me to create a folder - powerstore, on my server, set everything up, then once I am ready to go live, move all up one level?

I haven't tested moving it to different subdirectories after setup. I think there could be an issue with doing that because product images and contents stored in the database will use an absolute path. It would probably all function but you may have some image path issues using that technique.

What do you mean by unable to find your placement page?
