QUESTION: "Index of /


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am a website programming baby just outta the womb. I just got a domain name and am simply trying to laod an "under construction" page on the URL.


The problem is that when I go to the site, there is an "Index of /" and then below that it says "parent directory" and then below that, the file name of my .html. If I click on my .html, it will display the page like it should look. Someone in another post mentioned deleting the host's index.html, but I looked and didn't see one. I use a small orange for a web host. Any ideas? Let me know if you need more details. :D

If there is not index file then there is nothing to show hence the file structure.


Rename your file index.php and it will display automatically. Under Construction is tacky... either leave the structure till you have something or call it Future home of and explain what the site will be. Under Construction is just to much retro 90's.
