Hi there! I have decided to take a stab at putting together a site using SilverStripe and would like to keep a placeholder page in tact. Right now I have one page (index.htm) in the root of the sites directory, but when I toss in the files for SilverStripe I loose that placeholder and it hasn't even been installed yet!

I have renamed the index file for silverstripe to index_ss.html and kept my placeholder as index.htm and still no dice. Any suggestions would be most helpful.

You'll need to add a rewrite rule to the .htaccess file; something like this, just after the RewriteEngine on line.

RewriteRule ^$ index.htm [L]

Thanks Sam! I found another thread on here pertaining to the same thing. (doh) This is most helpful.
