OK, I will have mercy on you -
The htdocs folder is configured to serve index.php.
\htdocs\index.php is a redirector to the folder htdocs/xampp which serves its 'index.php' which is the XAMPP page.
you can remove index.php from htdocs (in whihc case it will serve index.shtml, then index.html (or others) in the order stated in this code in apache\conf\httpd.conf. It always serves the one highest in the list on any given directoy IF you do not specify a filename. This is known as the Index property. If you want you can also edit this list down to a few things you know you will be working with.
- Code: Select all
DirectoryIndex index.php index.pl index.cgi index.asp index.shtml index.html index.htm \
default.php default.pl default.cgi default.asp default.shtml default.html default.htm \
home.php home.pl home.cgi home.asp home.shtml home.html home.htm
So if your "Home" page is index.html, just remove index.php and index.shtml from the folder and XAMPP will serve index.html for you. (the same would also be true of defualt.htm - another common choice for a 'home page' )
