Ubuntu 14.04.5 x64 Apache - Showing Index Of/ instead of index.html?
Good day, I’ve set up my server online over DigitalOcean, I followed their guides on how to set up an Ubuntu 14.04.x x64 server, setting up a LAMP stack, and installing phpMyAdmin. Everything is working fine, the
mySite.com shows the apache setup page. However, when I uploaded my new
index.html (located at /var/www/html/index.html) file (I renamed the default one to index-default.html) and then refreshed my site, instead of showing my site, it shows
Index Of/. I tried
mySite.com/index.html and it works. It’s just a bit of a hassle to have the user type in
mySite.com/index.html and I know it can work with just
mySite.com. I opened up FileZilla to check if this may be caused by the difference of the permissions and ownership, and they were initially different. I updated the permissions and ownership and now they have the same sets.
The permission is
-rwxrwxr-x and then the Owner/Group has been set to
www-data www-data and now I’m just confused as to how to proceed with this.
Basically I want the site to show my index.html just by going to mySite.com.
