I am using what I assume is a pretty standard cPanel setup (?)
I would like to be able change the mime types/extension so that ".html"
gets sent through the PHP interpreter, but I see the cPanel docs say
"...(note that you can not alter the system defined mime type values)..".
So as a workaround, I need to *at least* be able to change the default
file to return to the browser when someone hits my domain (or a
subdirectory) without specifying the page in that dir/ to load.
I cannot find where in cPanel to set that. The default now is the
standard "index.html". I want to change it to "index.php".
I realize this is really basic stuff, but I can't find it in my cPanel.
Can someone point me to this?
If you have mod_rewrite installed - put the following in your .htaccess
RewriteRule ^index\.html$ index.php [L]
That will cause index.php to be called when index.html is requested.
If you want it to forward to index.php then use [R] instead of [L]
If you want all .html to be sent to php equivalents -
RewriteRule (^.*)\.html$ $1.php [L]
should do the trick.
btw - with those rules, the .html files do not need to exist. If/when
they are requested, whether they exist or not, the link or redirect is made.
