I wanted the default webpage of an internal server to go to the Cgi-bin directory so I could see my configs.


Here’s what I did.

Log into the server via SSH.

#sudo su

So I could modify the default webpage as root.

#nano /var/www/index.html

This is the file that needed modifying, I changed it to the following code:

<meta HTTP-EQUIV=”REFRESH” content=”0; url=http://rancid/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/”>

In my case, my internal server is called rancid and this was the page I wanted to access by default. In your case it will be a different server and different page probably so just needs modifying to your required page

Nice and easy.
