Changing home directory


#1

For some reason I can’t delete some files out of my home directory and when I tried to do a one-click install, it wouldn’t let me because my home directory wasn’t empty.

So I’ve installed it to webdomain.com/index

How do I change my page to begin on that page instead of just webdomain.com?

I know I could redirect it, but not sure that’s what I need to do.

Thanks.

Well you haven’t told us which application you are using. I’m going to assume you are using WordPress. If so this thread will help you

If you are not using WP tell us what you are using and maybe someone would be able to chime in about it.

If you really do want anyone who types webdomain.com to be forwarded to webdomain.com/index you can do a 301 redirect but since you did want your website to be at webdomain.com initially and ran into problems you should read through the information on the link I provided. Its pretty straightforward.
