    Hey guys

    Been on holiday now for 4 weeks a quite bored.
    Decided to make a website on Dreamweaver CS3.
    Uploaded site to FTP server for testing, and all should work, well it doesnt.
    I uploaded the files to public_html folder.
    But when I type domain name www.example.com it only brings up the index with all folders.
    When I type in www.example.com/index.html the site opens correctly.
    Did I miss/delete something, what am I missing.
    Spent the whole morning googling the prob but with no luck.
    Web design and what not is totaly new to me.

    PLease help

    Thanks in advance
    Pof

    That's a server setting that appears to be set incorrectly.

    Try changing the index.html to index.htm , see if it works. If it's a windows server, change it to default.htm Or default.html

    If you have access to your hosting provider control panel, there may be a setting where you can add index.html as you default document.
