+__Notice__: The home page setting acts as redirect: after the ===yoursite.com/index.php=== is requested, it feeds new address to the browser, like ===yoursite.com/package/index.php===.

+In such cases the easyest solution is to use ))mod_rewrite((:
+*check if ))mod_rewrite(( is on in your PHP settings (there's some other wiki page explaining how to turn it on if it's not)
+*add to the .htaccess line: ))DirectoryIndex(( /++yellow:package++/++yellow:page++.php
+*set the active package manually by adding to kernel/config_inc.php this line: {code}if( dirname( $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] ) == '' ) { define( 'ACTIVE_PACKGE', 'home-package(usually wiki)' ); }{/code}
+You are set!
