I'm trying to set up a simple static website.

1) Under domains/websites >> applications I created a Static/CGI/PHP app called "staticshare". (I also redid it with a plain Static app called staticpagesonly.)

2) Under domains/websites >> websites, I created a website: Security is "normal website", gzip is enabled, status is enabled, and I inserted a domain (share.mydomain.com). The app was staticshare (later I tried staticpagesonly).

3) I then went to ~/webapps/staticshare/ and created a simple index.html. (Later I had to create a ~/webapps/staticpagesonly directory and put the index.html in there.)

My index.html is not showing. Instead I'm getting a page that says "Hello, world" in the top left corner. There must be a simple problem here, but I can't see it ...

It sounds like the site is setup correctly and displaying the contents of the index.html file. If you open a support ticket we can take a closer look at your setup.
