xampp

I am using xampp on windows 7 ultimate - working perfectly well

I need to be able to tell the software to use the .html extension as well as the .php, .htm etc

If I type in the following in my web browser:
http://localhost/website/
If the index page is index.htm then it opens
if it is index.html it will not open automatically unless I use the full path:
http://localhost/website/index.html

Go to XAMPP control panel, then click on Config->Apache(httpd.conf) on the Apache line.

Search for "DirectoryIndex". It should look like this:

DirectoryIndex index.php index.pl index.cgi index.asp index.shtml index.html index.htm

If index.html is not there (as I suspect), add it, save the file, then restart Apache (click on Stop then on Start).

HTH,
Dan
