I have always thought that the file called index.html or index.php was the "starting" point for any web site. I have a client who has default.html as the main page.

How does one specify that "default.htm" as opposed to "index.htm" is the "main" page? Is it different for different web server software or ??

Thanks

The "starting" point for any web site can be set in the web server configuration which is different for each web server software.  It is not fixed at index.html or index.php.  If it is Microsoft IIS, the default used to be 'default.asp'.  Under Apache in 'httpd.conf' or 'apache2.conf', look for Directory Index.  There should be a space separated list of file names that can be the 'starting point' for that directory.
