Redirect domain.com/index.html to domain.com


Recommended Posts



It seems to be a common thing, but i cannot find solution.

Redirection from domain.com/index.php to domain.com is OK. 


Is it possibile to redirect /index.html and /index.shtml the same way?


I tried few commands like this, but with no luck:

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^.*/index.html
RewriteRule ^(.*)index.html$ https://www.podkasztanami1.pl/ [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^.*$ %{ENV:REWRITEBASE}index.html [NC,L]

My htaccess:

Seems that on your server mod_rewrite is not activated or you didn't activated friendly URL's ? /index.php will not appear, if friendly URL's are activated. Than you will reach your URL only by domain.com, without the /index.php in URL.


You activate this on back-office, tab "Preferences " -> SEO & URL's -> Set-up URL's ->  Friendly URL = YES. If friendly URL are activated, than you should revert to your provider. Seems that something is going wrong with mod_rewrite.


BTW index.html is not the same as index.php (used by Prestashop).


EDIT: I checked your domain and I'm not able to access https://www.podkasztanami1.pl/index.php which is Prestashop native. index.html is not a valid Prestashop site. If you try, you will get the error site of Prestashop.


If you want to redirect html to php try to add this line to your .htaccess (on first, before Prestashop block).

RewriteRule ^index\.htm$ index.php [NC,R]

Redirection is before presta block, and is redirecting.

With 301 redirection - some SEO audit point this page (domain.com/index.html) as an issue, so i hope permanent will be better.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^index\.htm$ index.php [NC,R=301]
RewriteRule ^index\.html$ index.php [NC,R=301]
RewriteRule ^index\.shtml$ index.php [NC,R=301]

Thanks a lot.
