Yeah, my bad. I guess it's more of an Apache question - though other Perl people might ask the same question in the future. Thanks guys, and sorry for not RTFM!

    HEY! I'm doing the same thing. I use a redirect as well and it works and I just thought "Eh, that works".

    Granted I don't think I can get my ISP to make this addition for me without charging me so I am still in the same boat there for now. But at least on my home Apache server I can make the change.

    BTW: Just a quick thought...if you need to change the home page with this new method, you will need to shutdown and restart the server. Leaving it as a redirect means only updating the redirect file call. Something to think about if your into remote administration.
