Classic webservers are used for publishing one or more websites. They work in a simple way: you just tell which folder contains files to be published, and it is done.

This is possible also with HFS. Just follow these steps:

  1. in the virtual file system, right click on the root(home) and click bind root to real-folder
  2. select the folder containing the website files
  3. re-right-click the root and click default file mask
  4. type index.htm*

Most times index.htm* is ok, but your main page file may have a different name, like default.html, check it out.

Disclaimer
Let it be known that HFS is not designed to publish websites.

At the moment no server-side scripting is supported.
