    How does one change the default for Primo?
    Instead of entering
    in order to display the OURVIEW1 version, we want to enter
    Currently that address displays a different "default" version.

    An example follows detailing how Iowa State University did their redirect.
    This is entirely the customer's responsibility, since it can be done with apache (in the case of Iowa State, the apache was the LIBRARY apache, not the PRIMO apache) or on any other network device that can route the navigation in your network.


    For the Apache redirect, on the library's main web server (, the following Iine was added to httpd.conf:

    Redirect permanent /home.html

    There was also a line in httpd.conf which set "/home.html" as the document to be returned when no specific document was requested by the client browser (i.e., when the requested URL was simply ""):

    DirectoryIndex home.html /home.html
