Usually when you browse to http://www.yoursite.com/ the browser leads you to index.php because this is the default file where you get to when only pointing on directory/
If you wish to have portal.php or another files as your default you can easily manage it by creating a .htaccess file.
In order to create a .htaccess file take the following mesures:
1.Open the .htaccess file in your forum root with an editor like windows editor, notepad, wordpad etc.
(You may need to download the file and open it afterwards)
2.Enter the code below at the end:
- Code: Select all
(you can replace index.html with whatever file you want, e.g. portal.php)
3. Save the file
4.Upload and overwrite the exisiting one
(if your editor creates a htaccess.txt - upload this one, delete the old .htaccess, and rename the htaccess.txt to .htaccess)
Now your directory index is the file you typed in.
