Website Showing up as index of/

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi, I design and manage the website for the Small Business I work for.
http://www.terraceair.com/
I was checking the website today on Firefox, and something did not show in the right color on one of the pages, like it did in Sharepoint Designer 2007. So, i went to view it on Internet Explorer 8 and it came up as index of/ and then a list of the pages. I then, viewed the page in Firefox and came up as the same as in Internet Explorer 8. I have all the current updates for both Browsers. I also do have an index.html page like my professor said I had to have in order not to get the list. I will say that another person took over the website for a little bit and used WYSIWYG web builder. I just retook it over and added and corrected pages using Sharepoint Designer 2007. Can some one please help get back to loading correctly and not in a list format.

Since http://www.terraceair.com/index.html works, it appears that your web server is not setup correctly. You can try placing a .htaccess file in the root of your site with this line in it:

DirectoryIndex index.html

How do I create a .htaccess file?

I will say this, before this morning it was working fine. I would type in the address or click the link on Google and the index.html would load fine.

Maybe you should check with your web host, as this should already be set s the default. However, in the mean time you just create a text file, include the line I indicated above in it, and then save it as ".htaccess". That is the file name. Upload it to the same place as your index.html file.

Using the .htaccess file, or something else?
