Index file name issues

#1

Post by ghudalla » Thu Mar 15, 2018 4:19 pm

The default "Index" name is capitalized and my site hosted on GoDaddy requires the "index" name to be all lower case. Is there a way to change this default file name to something other than the 3 available on the dropdown?

the index file name shouldn't be capitalized, it should already be all lower case letters. Where are you seeing it capitalized?

The name "Index" is capitalized In my drop down menu for the default home page on Tools - Build website options

That is just in the drop-down... the actual file name that will go on the server is lower case.

If that were the case...Doug...I wouldn't have to rename it every f'n time the site is updated.

Something else must be doing that, I just built a website here and file that gets created is index.html all lower-case. What does it look like on your computer before you upload it?

The local file names written to the C:\ drive have the "Index" file capitalized. Attached is a screenshot.Image

I'm really not sure where that would be coming from. This is what I am seeing. I also checked the code and all the report files that get written are all lower-case.

could you be more specific in case anyone else has the same issue so they can correct it as well.

Do you have a backup of your *.tt file??? If not save a 2nd copy somewhere other than your computer, use a flash drive or something, don't wait do it now!! Do it any time you make a change or import new entries.

Not really sure how the local directory was originally populated with a capitalized "Index" file name. I deleted the entire directory contents where it was being stored locally and rebuilt the website. The "index" file was then rewritten with the proper lower case spelling for upload to the host server.
