Order of default index pages for www.depts.ttu.edu websites


Explanation

After a www.depts.ttu.edu site is created, the website administrator needs to create a default page in the root folder of the account in order for their website address to function. The default page should be saved as one of the following file names:

  • index.php
  • index.asp
  • index.aspx
  • index.htm
  • index.html
  • default.php
  • default.asp
  • default.aspx
  • default.htm
  • default.html
  • home.php
  • home.asp
  • home.aspx
  • home.htm
  • home.html

Only one of these files is needed. This file is the page that is displayed when users browse to https://www.depts.ttu.edu/site_name.

The web server will check for and display the default page in the order listed above.

EXAMPLE: If both an index.php and an index.asp page exist, the index.php page will be displayed when users browse to https://www.depts.ttu.edu/site_name. This is because index.php is higher in the list than index.asp.
