HTML How to Make a Website Sharing a Website Upload the Website

Uploading a Website

So I've followed all the directions and dragged and dropped my workspace files to the proper "www" folder. When I refresh my page to see my website, the "index of /" page shows up with all the folders containing my html, css, image and javascript material. This doesn't seem to occur when nick refreshes after uploading his files. Help?

I don't know if this is the problem, but do you have index.html page? The browser recognizes that as your homepage

Ah! Yes! Changing my front page html to "index.html" did the trick! Thank you so much!

Do you have an index.html page?
