How can i set a default page for a specific folder


#1

Hi all!! :slight_smile: Im testing my site on local host before uploading it however, ive got a problem: i dont know how to set a default page for a specific folder without naming it index.***
For example: Ive got a link like this: http://www.example.com/eg/ and there r 3 file 1.html, 2.html, 3.html in eg folder. I want to set 2.html to be appeared when people type that link into the address bar without renaming it. Can anyone tell me how to do? Thanx 4 reading my post!! :slight_smile:

Try the DirectoryIndex directive:
DirectoryIndex index.html 2.html

Visitors to http://www.example.com/ will first try index.html and then 2.html. This goes in a .htaccess file. I’m not sure if it’s recursive in that putting the .htaccess in root will take effect throughout the entire website, but my guess is that it is.
