Web Server: Index Of


I'm have a Ubuntu webserver which I have installed xcart website in /var/www/html/xcart/

When I go to my domain for example "www.example.ca" I get an Index of
http://i.imgur.com/FEihr4i.png

If i click on the xcart link the website loads perfectly.

How do i fix it so when i go to "www.example.ca" it automatically loads xcart instead of showing Index Of?

Thanks in advanced guys!!!

Web Server: Index Of

You need to edit the Web Server configuration so that the document root coincides with the location of your files.

Assuming you are using Apache, here is the documentation for doing so on Ubuntu:

The following will also be helpful :

If xcart is the only web application you are running, you could also move everything to /var/www instead of where you have the files copied to.

You can use .htaccess to hide the subdirectory url. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2...after-redirect
