I have installed and have been running my website from the root directory. I am now trying to setup a home page to go in front of the forums. The problem I am having is that the site always goes to index.php instead of index.html. I have tried .htaccess and other things to get index.html to be the first file type the server should pick up. I have contacted my server admin to see what might be going on with this.
In the mean time, I am thinking the alternative I might have to take is to get the forum software in a sub folder.
Is there a easy way to do this?
