    Where in cPanel would I find the index.html file for the homepage ofthe website. I'm doing some altering for hte client and I've been looking through their files and can't find their home page code anywhere for the LIFE of me. And I need it so I can change it around a bit. Help!?

    Would I find it in:
    Web Root
    Home Directory?

    Thanks!

    In the public_html directory, try there.

    I've searched for it everywhere and there is no index.html to be found. Which is weird because the website is live and working.

    It could be default.htm or index.php or something else. Are you sure it's index.html and not any other name? It should be under the public_html directory, like mentioned before, or under a subdirectory, if there's a redirection.

    Check what Patty suggested. Also for the redirection see the .htaccess file.
