question on index files

dcrowexMarch 9, 2004

I was finally able to get some pages loaded to a web site. The directions said to be sure to delete the index.html. I did that and now all I have is a list of files on the site. The name of the site is Jamielee and when you go to this site, it says "index of Jamielee.

What did I do wrong?

How do I fix it?

thanks for your help.

Usually your home page is called index or default. I'm not sure why you were supposed to delete that file. Could you post your web address and maybe we could figure it out from there.

Just rename your main page to index.html. They were just telling you to delete the temporary index file they had placed there.

It is standard procedure to name your main page index.html. Otherwise you will have to specify the file name everytime you go to the site.
