    No index.html as homepage

    Hi,
    I don't want index.html to be loaded if someone goes to my site. Like test.com (is actually: test.com/index.html)
    I want if you go to test.com (test.com/application/models/index.php) loads.
    What should I change in my htacces file?

    I know the easy solution is to have my index.html auto redirect to that location, but I think that's not the most efficient way.


    Thanks in common,
    David

    I think you'll want something like this:

    Code:
    RedirectMatch permanent ^/$ http://www.test.com/application/models
    If that doesn't work, you'll want to try Googling for "change directory root htaccess."

    You could set up an .htaccess rewrite condition, but actually "test.com/index.html" is not the same path as "test.com/application/models/index.php". If you want "test.com/index.html" to go to "test.com/application/models/index.php", the use the .htaccess file or try a 301 Redirect.

    You will need to have .htaccess file for url rewriting. A simple line of code below with redirect URL as per your needs:

    Options +FollowSymLinks
    DirectoryIndex index.php

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]{3,9}\ /index\.php\ HTTP/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ http://www.askapache.com/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
