As far as i know, mod_rewrite can do this..

Say for example, i have a page at
http://www.mysite.com/folder/page.php and i want to use it as my main index, so people will see it when they enter

I dont want any other pages in the /folder/ directory affected.

Can .htaccess mod_rewrite do that? And if so, how?

I don't have any experience with mod_rewrite personally, but these links should prove useful (it was a 2-minute google search for the keywords: "mod_rewrite"+"url"):

Official apache documentation of mod_rewrite:

Apache URL rewriting guide:

Another (less complicated) guide to URL rewriting with mod_rewrite:

The third will probably prove the most useful if you are just looking for a simple guide to URL rewriting and aren't too experienced with configuring apache or have little interest in getting very deep into the functions of mod_rewrite

Here, you can use this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^index.php /folder/page.php

And assuming the index.php is the default page when someone goes to http://yoursite.com/ it will look like they're at /folder/page.php

If you want to redirect them there just add a [R] on the end
