I have a site which has numerous subfolders with index.html within them.
When browsing the site no longer finds the index.html page unless manually entered
generates a 404
finds the page fine.
The www.site.com URL finds the index.html page on the root fine.
Whats going on?
Any page can be the "default" one. It doesn't have to be called index.html if you don't want it to be.
if you are using a hosting service somewhere in their control panel there should be an option to set the default document, if not then contact them.
That instructs the server to look for index.html first when a user tries to browse a directory. If you want, you can set up a list of filenames in the order you want, e.g.
DirectoryIndex index.html default.html home.html
