.html in url?

    Suddenly this morning one of the sites on my server stopped shopped showing up. The reason. . . when you put the URL in the browser addess bar, it forces the file index.html (http://website.com/index.html). The problem here is that the default page has always been index.shtml. So the index.html didn't exist, so a page not found error appeared.

    I have added an index.httml page so the site works but the url still shows in the address window as http://www.findbliss.com/index.html
    click here to see what I mean.

    The link above goes to :http://www.findbliss.com/ without the index.html.

    Help, this is annoying. . .

    Create an .htaccess file inside the directory.
    Inside that file (or opening an existing one), add this line:

    DirectoryIndex index.shtml index.html

    This will force all browsers to automatically check for the shtml first, then fall back on html if it does not exist.
