Website is a folder online

  PC Advisor Fan 13:56 11 Feb 09

Hi Everyone,

I have a website click here and because I use Joomla I have all the Joomla files in a folder called site, when someone types in click here I wanted it to automaticly go to click here, i have tried a bit of javascript but wondered it there is any other way.

I use CPanel

Grab the .htaccess file off your server - or make one if necessary - and add a DirectoryIndex entry. It can point to a file in a sub-directory.

There was no point in bumping your thread in less than an hour, at that time of day, in this forum!

It's better to open server files in a text/code editor rather than Notepad. Try Vim or Notepad++.

With .htaccess, every entry takes a new line and this particular entry takes this format:

DirectoryIndex /nameoffolder/nameoffile.extension
