    I need some help killing PHP. It is permanently using 4 files I need to delete, and I suspect it has somehow managed to break my subdomain. When I go to the subdomain at madcow.applyclan.com, rather than booting then the index it gives me an error, saying that it can't find the file /. I don't want the file /, I want index.html. I can get to the index by typing the full address, madcow.applyclan.com/index.html.

    I do not have SSH access, unfortunately. So if anyone know how to make PHP close access to those files to delete them, please tell me. If there is a way to restart PHP, tell me. If anyone knows know why my subdomain is broken, tell me.

    Thanks

    Go on, have a guess
    I would suggest that you put all those questions to your hosting provider, that's what you pay them for.

    Add the following line to a .htaccess file in the directory you want it to take effect in:
    DirectoryIndex index.html

    The index page suddenly started loading again (without modifying the .htaccess file). I don't know why.

    As for those files permanently in use, I found I could rename the folder. I just renamed it .something to hide it. I hope the fact that the files are still being used doesn't slow down the server or anything. They are very small.

    Good call about contacting my hosting provider. I'll do that. Thanks.
