Find a page in WordPress

Hey EE.  I added an ecommerce snapin (woocommerce) to the WP site I use.  The ../shop page never would display properly and only showed what would best be described as a page that said Shop but the content was just a outline of the pages on my site.  Odd so I deactivated it, deleted it and all associated files and thought I was done with it.  For some reason, when I go to mysite.com/shop, my home page shows up instead of being a 404 error page.  I tried a couple of bogus pages (mysite/bogus) and I got the 404 error so I am wondering where this link or page is for /shop.

I already checked the list of pages in the WP admin portion and did a search on that page for /shop but nothing was found.  How do I find where this /shop reference is so I can remove it before trying to re-install woocommerce?

Also, if you recommend a different online store snap-in, I'm all ears.  I tried a few already but am willing to try another based off of recommendations.

Thanks!

Did you check your trash?  When you delete a page in the admin section it gets sent to the trash bin.  The url is still reserved while the page exists in the trash bin.  You would need to permanently delete the page from the trash to free up the url.

No.  I maintain the server is misconfigured and you will probably need ISP support to resolve it.  I don't have the skills to diagnose or fix stuff like that.

Oh, ok.  Well, I guess I have no choice but to see if Alex can come up with some ideas before I issue a request for attention.  Thanks anyway for the effort.
