    index page changed to welcome, need to reverse

    a few years ago I changed the default directory to /home and default page to welcome.php. Cannot find the .htaccess page I used. Put the wordpress in the /home directory and the main theme page comes up but it cannot find the front page and substitutes a search offer. Probably because the address bar says home/welcome.php. Could someone  explain what I am missing? I have been unable to find the answer searching about.

    Hey @wildhairz, sounds like you might have a .htaccess file? Typically a line in my .htaccess file would look like:

    #default index pages
    DirectoryIndex maintenance.php index.htm index.html index.php

    I would just create a new .htaccess, if it doesn't allow you to create one then you already have one that may be hidden by your hosting? Hope that helps?

    ...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.
