You have to go into the server's management console to change that. Fire up the MMC (Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> IIS), and look for the "Default Document" tab. From there, you can add/remove individual files (index.htm, index.php, index.asp), and change the order of preference.

I'm trying to do something like this: DirectoryIndex index.php index.htm index.shtml index.html on a Microsoft-IIS/5.0 server I don't seem to be having any luck with it. Does IIS use another format/another filename? I googled a bit but didn't find anything saying yes or no, so I'm guessing that either a) it uses something completely different or b) the server has htaccess turned off tia TjL -- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
