   My website displays a list of files.

Question 

Why does my website display a list of files instead of my home page?

Answer 

QWK.net uses standard file naming conventions for index pages. This means that if you do not have your home page named 'index.html', 'index.htm', or 'index.php' then the server will not know where to pull your website's content from.  Also note that the index file must be all lowercase.

If you have fixed the problems described above and your domain is still displaying a list of files, make sure that there are no other "index" files in your domains root directory.  If there are multiple index files, your website may be trying to read the incorrect one.  If there are multiple index files, simply rename or delete the one that should not be used.
