how to redirect

I was wondering how to redirect my website adress to just an ipdress. for example say the link to my website would be 123.45.67.890/index.php . how would I be able to change it so that when a person enters 123.45.67.890 it would go to my XOOPS website instead of having to add the /index.php ?

thanks already in advance!

Ask your system admin. Or use your .htaccess file to do it.

you can put an index,html file with this code in your root:

<html>
<
head>
<
title>YOUR SITE TITLE</title>
<
meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0; URL=http://www.YOURURL.com">
</
head>
<
body>
</
body>
</
html>

Just don't MASK the redirect. If you do your users will experience login problems. You can also assign that IP to a regular domain name if you have nameservers set up.

...a rookie question on this technique:

(I have a pending new site that may require the XOOPS install to be in a subdirectory)

If you use the index.html redirection, or an .htaccess to redirect...

..does that affect how you look to the search engines?
If so, how? ...and how can you overcome that?

thanks
