Why is my Index defaulting to 404 page?

asked Sep 30 by ddkdave (170 points)
In Page properties, the Index page is defaulting to 404 page and I can't seem to change this. This is of course causing issues with site being able to be searched, and I can't generate a sitemap.

You have probably deleted the index template. If you have a back up of the website on your server, you can restore it. If not, you can reinstall the theme you downloaded.

I think I may have accidentally clicked the 'substitute this page with the index page' button. I couldn't figure it out, so reinstalled the main files. All running good now ;-)
