    Hi:
    So I currently have my main index.php file renamed to just “style” and use a .htaccess file to treat it as the former. My question is, is there any harm in duplicating index.php again and saving it with a different name, say “content”, so my EE can be accessed using both URL root names:

    http://www.mysite.com/style/blogname/
    OR
    http://www.mysite.com/content/blogname/

    It seems to work, though what concerns me is that in EE control panel under Admin ›  System Preferences ›  General Configuration, you have to specify the “Name of your site’s index page”, which obviously has room for only one index page name. What are the repercussions of allowing users to access my site via two index page names?

    Thanks!
