Serving index.html from a subdirectory

xbonez asked:

In my document root, I have to directories: home and foobar, both with their own index.html files.

How can I set it up so that when someone visits my site at, they see the contents on home/index.html?

I tried using an index.php with a redirect in document root, as well as a .htaccess redirect, but both of them change the URL in the browser to, which I would like to ideally avoid.

My answer:

Why don’t you just move the contents of home up one directory?
