Apache: How to change the default index page
The below command will set the default page your website shows to whatever you specify. For example the below command will set your website to show the index.html file as default.
The below change will attempt to show business.html as the default page for your website and every directory.
And you can even do something cool like have it load a movie or image by default.
Or even specify multiple files so that it will try to load the first one, then the next, and so on. So with the below line it would try to load business.html, then if that wasn’t there index.cgi, and if that wasn’t there index.pl, and so on.
DirectoryIndex business.html index.cgi index.pl default.htm
If it can’t find the file you specify it will revert to a directory listing of the files in that folder.
