How to use a SWF file as your homepage


How to use a SWF file as your homepage without embedding it into an HTML page.


Name your flash file as index.swf. Edit the .htaccess file in your /public_html/ directory and insert the line below.

          DirectoryIndex index.swf

Now your flash file should come up as the default file for the homepage without having to embed it into an HTML page.
