Just installed WordPress and the installation was succesful.
However it seems WordPress assumes that the default file name is index.php. Our system is set up so that files with the name "default.shtml" are the default file.
This blog is at http://www.semmesco.com/blog. But that address won't get you to the blog page. I tried typing in "www.semmesco.com/blog/index.php" but that still didn't work. So I opened "index.php" saved it as "default.php" and uploaded it. So if you type in http://www.semmesco.com/blog/default.php that does work.
But it seems that changing file names arbitrarily could be a problem. Is there something I should do to address this index/default file naming conflict?
