    Default html address issue

    This is probably a very stupid question but I have a web server setup with Mac OSX server and I have this page (index.html) in the sub folder. Now whenever I type in the browser, http://www.xyz.abc.edu/pqr8 it doesnt link to the page but when i type a / it will (http://www.xyz.abc.edu/pqr8/). I want it to work if I typed http://www.xyz.abc.edu/pqr8 Can anyone tell me why this is happening?

    Thanks

    Are your other machines connected to the same network as the machine you are having problems with? If not; and if you have Windows, you could try to flush the DNS cache by going into the command prompt and typing

    ipconfig /flushdns

    Not sure what (if any) is the equivalent on any other OS.

    If it is on the same network (same ISP), you may want your ISP to update their DNS servers. This could be the problem.

    As for the first question, I believe there is a setting in the Mac OS X server admin that you could set to allow someone to access the pages without using extensions. That could be the problem, although I am not sure what that setting is off the top of my head.

    Anyways, hope this helps.

    Does anyone else have a clue on the first problem? Or Does anyone know if any settings can be changed on OS X server ?
