Non-Canonical Home Page

For some reason that I miss, my home page, running SMF 2.0.11 at the root, defaults to http://www.site.com/index.php instead of  http://www.site.com/.
In SMF's server settings I have given Forum URL as www.site.com.

I am using EZ Portal and a custom theme. SMF Packs SEO is also installed but have not made any redirects there.
Does anyone know why is this and how to fix it?


Thanks.

I see. Then I have to move SMF to /forum, add a 301 redirect and create  at the root an HTML home page, if I want it to default to www.site.com, right?
When checking for SEO compatibility I get an error for non-canonical home page.

why would you need to move the forum? having the homepage with index.php is just fine, as far as SEO is concerned
