Can IW be set up to reconginze Index.* files?

The question in my title is brought on by this issue. There is a Web Authoring program out on the market place called NetObject’s Fusion. NetObject’s used to be the company that owned the web site builder called Fusion, been around for years. And at one time a GREAT program. Well NetObject’s filed for bankruptcy back a few years back and a Company in Florida called Web Site Pros purchased the Fusion program and started out doing a good job with it, until they set up Fusion to ONLY publish using index pages with a capital “I”.

I had a client call me up saying he keeps publishing his site and it doesn’t show up. Well it was publishing just fine, but the index.html page was Index.html. Before I knew this he called the Web Site Pros tech support and they said it was your hosts problems and if your having problems we can offer you hosting at $X.XX which was about 4 times what I charge him. He told them no thank you.

It is VERY obvious as to what these so called “pros” are doing.

Before I learned of this issue with NetObject’s Fusion Version 7.5 OR later I had another customer that owned a piece of software that was doing the same thing. The ONLY choice they give the user is Index.html or Index.htm. They called tech support of the soft ware and did move their hosting.

So I need to combat this issue and allow my servers to accept a capital “I” in Index to be an accepted default index.* file.

Now my question, what is the BEST way to go about setting this up so my IW servers will recognize the Index.* file?

Thanks again for your feed back.

In /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf for GLOBAL changes to every Virtualhost


in: /etc/httpd/conf.d/DOMAIN.conf for just that domain.

You are looking to ammend or add the DirectoryIndex setting and include Index.html :slight_smile:

Thanks for the feedback!

Hope it helps. :slight_smile:

I haven’t had this exact situation before but what I do is put

DirectoryIndex index.php index.htm index.html index.shtml index.xhtml

in the main httpd.cof so I don’t have to specify it locally, it looks for one then if it doesn’t see it it looks for the next one etc.

In your case I’d just add Index.html and Index.htm
