I have a domain that looks like domain.com on the server files look like:


ok, so when you open the site, it will display index.html. my question is, how can I make it so it displays mydirectory/index.php, without affecting the scripts inside that directory (it's wordpress btw) ?

Create a rule in your .htaccess file to handle it. This may help out http://perishablepress.com/press/2008/10/06/redirect-subdirectory-to-root-via-htaccess/
