    I've never had any problems installing WordPress with cPanel Wordpress Manager and now all URLs result in either a 404 error or /cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

    I've checked the simple stuff like URL in phpMyAdmin and .htaccess and nothing I try works. I'm using Cloudflare but pausing it changes nothing.

    I'm really not sure what to do next after trying fixes I see posted elsewhere for the last couple of hours.

    Site: - Removed -

    Edit: It pops right up on mobile! I try clearing broswer cache and using Private tab in Brave browser and get the errors.

    Okay, this resolved itself on its own so I'm assuming it was a Cloudflare DNS issue related to HTTPS? How strange that it resolved within minutes of asking for help.

    Edit: Now Wordpress admin loads fine but everything else is /cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

    Edit: (five minutes later) all pages loading fine.

    Combination of Cloudflare DNS propagation and cache

    Strange. This is happening again and after an hour doesn't seem to be resolving itself.

    I created a new cPanel account, uploaded a static .html site and after an hour, everything resolves to /cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

    Officially asking for help. Any ideas?
