How can I locate my homepage to make changes?

Our web developer has left the company. I know where our website is hosted, which is Liquid Web, and I have the login to the console.

I have requested to make a simple text change on our homepage but I am unable to find the homepage file in the file manager. I have checked for index.php and default.php, but when I open them up to see the code, they have just a couple of lines.

I am viewing the source of the homepage to see if something can point me to the right name of the homepage file, but I don't see anything that can help me.

Is there any way that I can get the name of this file so I can edit it on my web hosting console?

The login to the admin panel will be something like this

www.mydomain.com/?q=user/login

Do you have the login details?
This isn't a page you can just edit.

You need to hire someone.  Drupal sites are database driven.  The items you're looking for may be in the database and not in the files.

Yes this is a Drupal site. The login will hopefully be at www.yoursite.com/user or www.yoursite.com/?q=user

If you don't have those login details then I can still get you in with the access to the files.

Once logged in you may find that an edit link appears on the page but it's possible that it's not that simple.

Let me know how it goes.

If you don't have the log in info, submit a ticket to LW and they should be able to help you at least reset the db password.

In my experience, LW support is excellent and as long as they can authenticate you as the owner of the site, they will be very helpful.  But that said, this comment reflects a lot of wisdom.  You might want to contact the Drupal experts at PHP Architect.  One of them that I can recommend from personal knowledge is Sandy Smith.

I did not know that we had support contract for the site, I ended up on contacting them.

Thank you.
