Trouble opening my correct Homepage using FrontPage.

I published a web site using FrontPage 2003 and it worked well when I went to it using www.mydomain.com. I changed it around a little and added a new first page with frames. It also works well if I go to it using www.mydomain.com/index.htm. The trouble I am having is that if I go to it using www.mydomain.com it opens the old first page which I can't seem to find or remove from the server. My question is, how do I get it to open to my new first page by just entering www.mydomain.com instead of www.mydomain.com/index.htm?

This depends on the order that your host has set for the primary page. Some use index.htm index.html default.htm etc.. However you can simply look at the name of your old index page and name your new page the same name. You might need to delete your old on. If I had to guess I would say the name of the file should be index.html. If you want us to tell you the exact name post the url to your site.

Thanks for the reply eolea,

The site is http://www.orurocks.com.  What I am trying to accomplish is when http://www.orurocks.com is entered you get the same results as if you entered http://www.orurocks.com/index.htm.  Hope I explained that alright.

Just as I suspected. You have two index files.

http://www.orurocks.com/index.html
and
http://www.orurocks.com/index.htm

You have to delete the index.html and save your new one as index.html. Sometimes simply deleting index.html might default to your second option index.htm as the home page but not always. You stated you were using frontpage, you should easily be able to delete the index.html in front page.

Let me know if you need more help.
