Thread: Pointing Apache to right start page

    Pointing Apache to right start page

    I have been playing with apache to learn about web servers and html, but now I have a question. After installing the server and starting it I can browse to localhost and it displays a test page saying that the server is working and that I can now set up a web page. I fooled around and made a very simple page to test with put it in the /var/www/html directory but I can't find where to make apache point to this page to start up with. I am using RH8 httpd.conf directoryroot is pointing to the path above or at least I think that it is. I have not changed any of the settings as of yet still doing the homework on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Mike

    You can change the default page that apache serves up by editing the DirectoryIndex setting in httpd.conf. The default is index.html.

    Either that or make sure that you name the start page in each directory index.htm or index.html
