How do I change the index file?

The index file is a file that will be processed by web servers by default when opening your directory with the site.
The hosting servers use the following index file usage priority:

[1] — index.php
[2] — index.html
[3] — index.htm

if there are several index files with different extensions in the root directory of your site, the file with the highest priority will work.

To override the index file, you just need to add the following rule to the .htaccess file located [in the root directory of the site] :

 DirectoryIndex FILE_NAME.extension

For example, if it is necessary that the home.php file be used by default, then it is necessary to add the rule:

 DirectoryIndex home.php

For quick access to the .htaccess file and its editing, you can use [file manager]
