RewriteRule ^$ index.html [L]

slated in site-building at 5:09 am

ie. allowing index.html despite textpattern’s obsession with index.php

thank you Andrew (aka ‘birthday boy’) for the line:
RewriteRule ^$ index.html [L]

making my .htaccess file:
RewriteEngine On
# line with [L] is specifically for construction
RewriteRule ^$ index.html [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^(.+) - [PT,L]

RewriteRule ^(.*) index.php

the brilliance and use of this is that index.html is no longer trumped by the index.php which is core to textpattern… so i can have my placeholder active in index.html, and still have my textpattern site/index.php running along happily.
