Trying to get catalog page as home page


Guest

Recommended Posts

I am trying to get the home page of my web site to be my catalog page without a redirect. Currently i am doing a simple redirect through index.html which is working but it is making my address http://fanaticsportscards.com/ecommerce/os/catalog/index.php and I want it to be http://www.fanaticsportscards.com for search engine purposes. I tried to do .htaccess but I guess I don't know what to put in cause it didn't work. I put in redirect ecommerce/os/catalog/index.php http://www.fanaticsportscards.com/ but the page just sits there and loads over and over.

 

Any help is truly appreciated.

move all the files from os/catalog to your root directory. most hosts have a quick way of doing it, if you do not have shell access, if you send them a nice email/support ticket, asking for help on doing this, they will do so. then you need to edit your configure.php files to reflect the change.

if they will not do it, you will need to do it via ftp

I use ipowerweb.com, I called them last night and they said it wasn't possible to do it. I don't know if I just got somebody who didn't know what they were talking about or what.

 

How do I do it going the ftp route?

Depending on the program you are using you can either just log in and drag and drop the files into your root folder, use a button or command, or you will have to download the files to your computer and then reupload them where you want them.

Found a way to make it work by doing some serious digging on here.
