Using webhostingboy ($/£ xchg rate more than favourable enough to give them a try, I'll let you know how I get on with them). Sat on Linux server, 2.4.20-24.9smp, Apache 1.3.29. Main domain not set up yet but I've parked an existing domain on it which I'm temporarily using to test one of my sites. I installed frontpage then, for various reasons, decided against using them so uninstalled them. The problem:
morefooty is a directory in the web folder. If I use the address giointer.net/morefooty I get a page not found. If I use giointer.net/morefooty/ (add the trailing /) I get the default index page (index.htm). In htaccess in the root of the site I've added
DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php
Other hosts I've used, admittedly with most settings defaulted by the host so I've never had to dip into anything like cpanel, it didn't matter whether I added the trailing / or not. Have I screwed something up by installing/uninstalling frontpage? Lost some htaccess setting? Or is this just the way it's meant to work?
