hello all,

on the web host my index.phtml is under:  webhost_home\myproject\public\
and i have a domain with name: www. domainname.com
after i set the dns of my web host in domain server, i can open my project under url:  http://www.domainname.com/myproject/public

the question is:

1: how do i open my project direct under: http://www.domainname.com, should i define the path somewhere.

2: the project is a zend project. if i input url
http://www.domainname.com/ in browser now, i can even see the file content displayed in brower, the url http://www.domainname.com/myproject/ also shows the project file under folder myproject. It should not be happened. So i input a index.phtml under   the web hosting root, and also webhosting_home/myproject and webhosting_home/myproject/application
. but i don't think this is the right way to resolve the problem. any suggestion? btw, the .htaccess is not allowed to put in web host.

following are some information about my domain and web hosting:
 
on the site of web hosting they said that the path of my web hosting is:   /home/vhosts/www.xxx.com
on the site of domain they said the path of  my domain is: /homepages/11/x11/htdocs/.
and Domain ist inclusiv-Domain.

thanks,
wantime

Web servers are often set up to display a file list when there is no default document like 'index.html'.  Putting 'index.html' is what you Should be doing.  Even if it is blank, it prevents the directory listing.

I don't know about Zend project.

thanks,

maybe i should modify some configuration in web server or php, so that the folder content could be protected. btw, i don't think it is a better way, when i put index.html into every folder to protect the content.

Using 'index.html' does not "protect" the files, it just prevents the directory listing.  You didn't ask about protecting the content.

If your host won't allow '.htaccess' files, that is very restrictive.  It would seem unlikely that you can modify the web server configuration if you can't do that.  Maybe you should consider moving to a different host.

 it seems a problem by '.htaccess' file.
