I just moved over to DH, and ran across something puzzling. I’m planning on using Wordpress as my interface, and let it do the one click install, leaving the subdirectory blank, assuming it would install to a default subdirectory like wp or wordpress.
However, it installed wordpress right in the root directory of the domain.
Wordpress uses index.php as it’s index page.
I was hoping to set up a splash page, which would then lead to the word press install.
Before I botch things up, I wondered this:
If I create and install index.html as my splash, then point it to index.php, will the server load the HTML first, or will it default to the PHP file first?
If I were to change default.php to something like default2.php, and point to that file from the index.html, will that still allow the PHP to behave properly, or is the content going to need to look for the original file name?
I’ve never run across a one click install that doesn’t default to a subdirectory automatically, and never would have guessed it’d just dump the install straight into the root.
(Might be a good thing to make mention of that fact on the one click install page)
Thanks in advance-
