Why is my Webview tab saying "Not Found?"

The issue is because you renamed the file to myResume.html.

The simplest solution would be to just rename the file back to index.html

Or you could go directly to your page by its url/myResume.html
You did say you tried this though. Possibly you left out the .html part or missed the capitalization of the R in resume? Certain browsers could be case sensitive.

Consistent capitalization.

Inconsistent

Naming the main page of a website as “index.html” is a convention followed by many web servers to automatically serve this file when a user navigates to the root directory of a website. This convention simplifies the URL structure and helps maintain consistency across websites.

When a user accesses a website without specifying a particular file (e.g., http://example.com), the web server typically looks for a default file to serve. By default, many servers are configured to look for files named “index.html” or “index.php” in the root directory of the website. If such a file exists, the server serves it as the main page.

To make a website redirect to another page, you can use HTML meta tags.

HTML Redirect: You can use the <meta> tag within the <head> section of your HTML document to instruct the browser to automatically redirect to another page after a certain amount of time. Here’s an example:

Create a file named index.html and paste the following contents into it.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5;url=myResume.html">
    <title>Redirecting...</title>
</head>
<body>
    <p>This page has moved. You will be redirected to another page shortly.</p>
    <script>window.location.href = "myResume.html";</script>
</body>
</html>

In this example, the page will automatically redirect to “myResume.html” after 5 seconds.

You could also make a link to your resume page on index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Redirecting...</title>
</head>
<body>
<a href = "/myResume.html"> My resume </a>
</body>
</html>
