Hello miyoka,

If you mean you want to rename an index.php to index.html, that will not be something you can do without changing the code for the file as php and html are entirely different languages.

Do you mean that you have already created an index.html page but it is not showing? In that case, you will want to take a look at our article on Changing your default index page. Doing this will let you set the index page to whatever you desire as long as it exists.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
