Setting the Default Index File

Be default, "index.html" is the page that is displayed when you access a web site directory with a browser.

http://www.somedomain.com/folder/

If there is no index.html or index.htm file in a folder, the browser will display a list of that folder's contents.

If you do not want to use the filename index.html or index.htm as your your default page you can dothe following:
  1. Connect to your server via Telnet or SSH.

  2. Change the DirectoryIndex definition in your web server configuration file (~/www/conf/httpd.conf) from index.html to the new name (e.g. default.htm or welcome.html).
