In my WP admin's "Pages" section is a page called "Home" with a URL of /home. This page's content gets called by my index.php file.

My problem is the /home page is coming up in search results, or someone could type in /home. Is it possible to redirect /home to index.php (or just "/")?

  • You simply don't have to do that. You can just select some page as your entry page (admin > settings), which will then be your index.php target.

Change your index.php file back to normal, then set that home page as the front page instead. Then the /home will redirect to / as it should.

  • How do I set the home page as the front page?

  • Settings->Reading. Choose what Page you want to be the front page, and choose another Page where you want the blog/posts to display.
