i have a wp page called mysite.com/stuff/
i have a subdirectory on my ftp called mysite.com/stuff/index.html
with a bunch of files and other subdirectories inside.
when i go to mysite.com/stuff/
i want it to show the wp page, but it keeps serving me the contents of mysite.com/stuff/index.html (the subfolder and wp page have the same name)
i need to keep all of the files inside the subdirectory mysite.com/stuff/ accessible via direct links, but just need to serve the wp page instead of the index.html
i need to keep the wp page name url and subfolder name the same, but only serve the wp page and NOT serve index.html. changing permalink structure is not an option at this point.
i tried using the redirection plugin and set source url to /stuff/index.html and target to /stuff/ but it's still serving index.html
please let me know if you have any suggestions. i tried renaming index.html to something else, but then it displays the subdirectory contents as a list of links in the browser, and not the wp page.
