    Hello,

    The contents are stored in your account's public_html directory:

    Code:
    /home/$username/public_html/
    You can remove the files and replace them with your own custom files if you prefer, either via FTP or File Manager:

    How Do I... FAQ - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Ensure you only delete the files within public_html, rather than the directory itself. The default files and directories associated with a Site Publisher template are:

    assets/
    images/
    configurations.json
    index.html
    LICENSE.txt
    sitemap.xml

    Thank you.

    If I have already installed and configured WordPress, won't that break it if I just delete the files mentioned above? Aren't these standard files?

    Hello,

    You can find a list of the default WordPress files for comparison at:

    WordPress Files « WordPress Codex

    The following feature in cPanel 58 should address this concern going forward:

    You can review the full cPanel 58 release notes at:

    Thank you.

    You should be able to move every one of those directories inside your public_html/, except the cgi-bin directory. When in doubt, back up what you want to remove, first. If nothing breaks you can delete it later.

    I have done all this and still my website only shows the Site Publisher page when it should show something else. What could be wrong?

    What should it be exactly? The index.html as mentioned above, is the default main page of the Site Publisher. Rename the index.html in your public_html/ directory to, dead.index.html, does your website work now? (assuming your new website uses an index.php here)
