I must say, don't know much of Linux/Apache, but I am trying to publish my site made with FrontPage on a Linux web server.
It says the home page should be "index.html".
1. Is index.html a mandatory filename for a site's home page on Linux?
2. Can't I set the default page to something else?
3. Is the ".html" extension mandatory? Would the ".htm" extension work for an "index.htm" default page?
