Opening pages in domains

Recommended Posts

I have one domain for example www.mydomain.host.com. When someone opens in his/her browser this link it displays the content of htdocs (I am using Apache in order to run PHP). How can I prevent the browser from showing the content of the folder and instead to redirect towards a php page?

This is more of an Apache question.

Apache has a directive 'DirectoryIndex', wich determins wich file it accesses when a directory, not a file is requested. If none of the files specified in this directive are present, but the directory is accessible to the client, it renders a standard page, listing files and directories in that directory.

If you're using a file called 'index.php', it should be in this directive.

For example:
[code]DirectoryIndex index.php index.html[/code]

Chances are however, your 'host.com' doesn't support php, as these free hosts usually don't.

If it does, and doesn't have index.php in the DirectoryIndex directive in httpd.conf, then you can redirect from an index.html.

You could use :
[code]<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=index.php" />[/code]
