Changing index.php to index.html
Posted on 2011-05-12
I have taken over a website which was created using Mambo and the login details have been lost by the creator! I also have no experience of Mambo and intend to change the site over to Wordpress at some point.
The issue is that I want to take the site temporarily offline using a quick change that can be reversed just as quickly.
The index page is currently index.php - can I rename this page to (say) indexbackup.php and insert an index.htm as a holding page? Would there be any issues replacing a .php page with an html page (temporarily)?
Thanks for your help.
