Strange URL in my site analytics

  • I receive Executive reports detailing site stats from my host.

    The first most requested file: /index.html
    The second: /wp-content/themes/default/index.html

    I am just wondering what references these urls?

    Any thoughts?

  • With all due respect, you’re the one with the report in their hands. 🙂

    drmike – cheeky reply. Maybe I can ask the questions in a different way.

    There is no reason for anyone to goto:

    http://my.domain.com/index.html

    so with that stated is there anything within wp that by default uses:

    http://my.domain.com/index.html?

    Going thru the filesystem I can not find an ‘index.html’ file anywhere.

    index.html is a standard filename. It’s typically the first place checked (by the webserver) when someone types http://www.domain.com/ into their browser.

    That probably means that whatever server software your host is using is configured to check there, before checking to see if you have any other DirectoryIndex entries in an .htaccess

    There is NO mystery there.
