i have a website and finally finished it with few hundreds of pages ready to be uploaded, the problem is that my hosting is Linux..and i heard that linux requires the files to be in .html format not .htm .. now the thing is.. all my files were produced in .htm but i managed to collectively change their extensions to .html in no time using a software i found on the web..Yet, the HTML code inside each file have "href" codes that refer to locations inside the site where the old extensions exist i.e : .htm
e.g : a file changed from welcome.htm to welcome.html is still being referred to by other pages as welcome.htm ..
is there any way i can collectively modify inside the HTML code to make them all refer to filename.html instead of filename.htm ?
Assuming you kept backups of all your original dotHTM files, Linux will serve them just fine.
weee seriously ? Thank you man.. yes, i kept the .htm files just in case.
Thank you so much! i was totally lost in this.
The correct name & extension for your home page only is determined by your Hosting company.
Some require the name index.html, but other pages are fine with blabla.htm
