normally all site default page is named as index.html . you can rename your page as index.html and upload it.

as such nothing special. you can check what is the default page as of now..
just rename that and put your page with the same name and check.

That would be true of Apache but Sharepoint is a Microsoft web server and file server and whatever else.  As such, @sullisnyc44 will probably need to consult the Sharepoint documentation to see what is required.

Hi sullisnyc44,

Assuming this is a SharePoint 2010 environment, you'll need to open SharePoint Designer and connect to your root site.  Once in Designer, click all files.  Copy and paste your new page into all files.  Right click your site and choose 'Set as Homepage'.

hth,

it's 2007. I uploaded the html page to sharepoint and set it as default. I just wanted to know if I had to Sharepointify it in any way.

Well, have you linked your css and masterpage to your html page?  If not, how are users going to navigate to the subsites or other site collections?

I don't care about that - it's just a landing page.
