Index in the web server directory
November 28, 2021
An index in a web server directory is in informatics a file of a certain name, which the web server considers to be the main one in the given directory. When a specific web page is listed in the web browser, but only the directory, the main page mentioned by the index file is sent to the user. Thanks to the index file, for example, when accessing the main page of a certain website, it is not necessary to state the name of the file (for example, https://seznam.cz is sufficient and https://seznam.cz/index.html is not required).
