I have a personal website https://example.com and I am thinking in use subdirectories on it to storage all the updates of my applications, with a structure like this:
If I enter in https://example.com/applications/, which is a subdirectory, I'd like to display the content of a .html file (i.e:/applications/apps.html) hiding the entirely filename and extension in the bar address, so it will show just https://example.com/applications/. This file contains links for each application.
If I enter into one of these links (i.e.: /applications/application1/), it will do the same as /applications/ (display the html file content, hiding it in the bar address).
I know I can hide the file extension with .htaccess, but I think it is not the way I am looking for.
Thanks a lot!
What you are looking for is DirectoryIndex . You want to set app.html as your directory homepage. You can use the following in applications/.htaccess :
This will load apps.html when the directory is requested.
