Site opens DIrectory Listing and not index.html

Website URL


All the files are inside the htdocs folder and I have an index.html file with some other subfolders there. how can I let connect it to the index file?

Add this to your .htaccess :-

#Prevent Directory Browsing
Options -Indexes
DirectoryIndex index.html


In your .htaccess file, you define the following line:

DirectoryIndex first.html

This means that the server will look for a file first.html. If it can’t find it, it will show a directory listing.

If you want to use index.html instead, you can just remove this line from your .haccess file.
