I agree, without more info… removing the forward slash only make sense.. as the OP states without it its ok… pretty straightforward…
+1 for shaneisme for helping.
explination to the OP:
if you have a URL of say, http://example.com it visits the default page in the main folder.
if you have a URL of say, http://example.com/ it STILL visits the default page in the main folder.
if you have a URL of say, http://example.com/folder1/ it visits the default page in the folder named “folder1” folder. if there is not a default file in folder “folder1” then your going to get a black white page or error message.
visiting http://example.com/folder1/ is like visiting http://example.com/folder1/index.html
personally on my web servers the default web page is index.php, and falls back to index.html. meaning that IF I visit http://example.com/folder1/ and inside “folder1” there is a file named “index.php” on my server I see that page… if the index.php file is missing but there is a index.html file I see that instead.. but if both are missing, I get a blank white page, or an error… such as “cannot be found” or something.
IF your site fails at the following examples you have larger issues. or no default webpage file in the folder where the URL points.
examples that should always fail
http://example.com/myFolderName (with no default files in folder like index.html)
http://example.com/myFolderName/ (with no default files in folder like index.html)
http://example.com/myFolderName/index (with no default files in folder like index.html)
