default index.html??

ok, HELP!!!

I want to setup a webspace so that when you navigate the the root directory it appears as a index of links similar to this

http://pictures.dodgeintrepid.net

I know it has something to do with the default index.html file. I don't want to change my index.html file that is the mainpage just want the index list to appear when I go to the root of subdirectories

is this feature specific to the webhost or can it be done??

You want the root to be viewed as a directory listing?

I'm not sure how to do that, but if you want to just throw all your pictures and links in a folder on the root, all you have to do is enable directory browsing for the ISUSRVR (Internet Guest Account) on that folder.

a la Directory Listing ...if you notice, if you go to my Parent Directory...you get the root, which brings you by default to my website.

Not 100% sure what you are talking about but in IIS you have to allow "Directory Browsing" and make sure you don't include a file that is listed under the Documents tab. Both are options that you can get to in the properties of the folder as viewed through IIS console.

Maybe more effective would be to leave your index.html as is ... so that someone hitting your website sees your default page. Set up a subfolder where you allow directory browsing and put your images or whatever in there. Then put a link to that subfolder on your main page.

Does that make sense?

yes and this is the problem I am having, the site I am working on is for my friends home business, he wants to setup subfolder to put sample pictures for people to easily see. When I setup a subfolder and then navigate to it I get the error that default index.html not found

I'm going to start playing around with permissions and see if that helps

Just tried it on my server at work seems to work for me.

I put a file default.htm in the root. Created a sub folder /images and set allow directory browsing to true for the web folder.
