createrepo question

hi! I've created a repo in /var/www/html/Server (where i run the createrepo command). I've also created an test.repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d/

In the test.repo file i created the url "baseurl=". When i try to issue the command wget, instead of getting the test.repo file i always get an index.html file in my client /etc/yum.repo.d/ folder. Any idea what's wrong with my setup or what could be the possibility? Thanks.

What happens when you access the repo with something that recognises repo data, like Yum?
