Sharepoint 2007 Home page changed url

My sharepoint site https://intranet.mydomain.com suddenly changed its default page.  For example when you open intranet.mydomain.com you are first redirected to https://intranet.mydomain.com and then taken to the default page https://intranet.mydomain.com/Pages/Default.aspx.  Or at least that was how it used to be.  Now it goes to https://intranet.mydomain.com/Default.aspx.  Not sure what happend?  Anyone have a clue?

Thanks in advance,
Tom

Hi Tom,

Has anything on the page changed?  My guess would be someone moved the Default page from /Pages/Default.aspx to the root directory and set it as the Home page.

The only thing that has changed is yesterday I ran

stsadm -o preupgradecheck

But that is only to make way for our v4 upgrade.  What's even more strange is that if that was the case and someone moved it, the cotent on both pages is different.

Here is another oddity that I hadn't noticed until I went looking to see if the page had been moved.  Now my /pages/default.aspx is listed as a site in the main navigation bar.  So I can visit https://intranet.mydomain.com and then click the link in the nav bar labled Home and get to the correct page.  However I am clueless as to how this has changed.

It seems unlikely that the preupgradecheck is responsible.  What I would suggest is

-Open up SharePoint Designer
-Navigate to the Pages Directory
-Verify your Default.aspx page is there
-Right click on you Default.aspx page
-Select Set as Home Page

Also, you can look at who last checked out or modified the page whilst in Designer.

That will only allow you to change a page located in the root of the site.  The actual page was burried one level deep under the pages folder.  As I understand it, the default page for SharePoint 2007 is the /pages/default.aspx.  Not sure why or how mine changed but I fixed it using the following tip from Microsoft.

Thank you for all your help.  I would not have gotten to where I am if you hadn't sparked me to try SharePoint designer.

I found the fix in the url posted.  I still was not able to diagnose why or how but the link directed me on how to change the SharePoint welcome page for a site.

Hi Tom,

If you'll reread my post, I said "-Navigate to the Pages Directory "...the same as the URL you linked.  I'm glad you were able to resolve it.
