How to remove Site Pro

Website URL

auroracarlson.rf.gd

Error Message

My website is linked to the Site Pro builder, showing a “coming soon” type of page.

Other Information

I have installed Wordpress and started to build my website.
Then I tried out Site Pro website builder. I never published the page.
I now want to return to the Wordpress builder but I don’t know how.
How do I remove the Site Pro installation?

Thank you!

firstly if you haven’t already then from your infinityfree dash click the site builders link at the top and then the trash can

secondly using infinityfrees file manager or a desktop client like filezilla delete all files and directories from your htdocs

this will remove all traces of sitepro leaving your hosting clean and empty

Thank you!
I trashed the builders.
But should I really delete all htdocs? I have worked in Wordpress already and have a lot of pugin settings, etc. Won’t this delete stuff in WP too?

ah ! if you had an active wordpress and then used sitebuilder after then thats a real mess, dont delete everything yet

i’ll try and find the link to the document on how to fix the situation

Thanks so much. I can’t find any files that look like Site Pro, or any info on this!

im going to install wordpress on one of my spare sites and im hoping that just index.php and .htaccess is all you need to fix it

one moment while I install wordpress and then sitepro and see what gets busted :rofl:

ok it looks like just the index.php file gets changed, I saved mine before installing sitepro so i’ll give you a copy. one moment please…

@Anetta ok so in file manager edit index.php in htdocs
currently it contains the sitepro commands

<?php
// Powered by Site.pro
if (function_exists('ini_set')) @ini_set('opcache.enable', '0');
include dirname(__FILE__).'/sitepro/index.php';
?>

delete all that stuff and copy this wordpress index below and paste it into your index.php and save the file

<?php
/**
 * Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn't do anything, but loads
 * wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
 *
 * @package WordPress
 */

/**
 * Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
 *
 * @var bool
 */
define( 'WP_USE_THEMES', true );

/** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
require __DIR__ . '/wp-blog-header.php';

This should fix it in theory :+1:

Just for future reference.

Site.Pro doesn’t delete the index.php, it simply renames it to spb_index.php. So all you really need to do is delete the Site.Pro index.php and rename spb_index.php back to index.php.

I think it was introduced along with the “coming soon” pages to mitigate the risk of deleting someone’s website by accident. But that whole thing was quite poorly communicated by Site.Pro, so I only learned about that much more recently.
