upload the file inside the folder to your phpbb root (where index.php is)

NEW LINK! (other one was corrupt, sorry)

-=TJL=- Staff,

changing index.php to something else is really out there. phpbb contains (easily) 800+ files. ill even be nice and say that 300 of them are images. so thats 500+ files that could contain index.php (i wont go into specifics about how phpbb is coded, but you cant just do a find/replace with "index.php" cause you wont get far). if you need me or darcie to help you with uploading that .htaccess file i posted (or editing phpbb's one, depending on where your main site is located), please let us know. i cant speak for darcie, but if you want to provide information for me to access your FTP (via PM please), i can upload it for you.

That's a rather rash question, as we've been helping you with this as best as we can. Can you explain what is it that you need now? :)

OK, but as A_O_C mentioned, this will involve changing a lot of files. You would have to change every time there is a link or a redirect to the index. If you aren't able to do the change I suggested, then the one you want to do is a bit more than you can handle. :?

I highly suggest you change it back to index.php and add the .htaccess file to make index.html be the default page for your site.
