How can I redirect the root of the webserver to a specific directory

Typically, this is better to configure this sort of redirect on your real servers, however you can utilize Header Modification to achieve the same result.

  1. Create a rule in Rules & Checking > Content Rules
  2. Use the following settings for your rule Rule Name: Rewrite_Root Rule Type: Modify URL Match String: ^/$ Modified URL: /redirect/to
  3. Navigate to your virtual service
  4. Under Advanced Properties select Show Header Rules
  5. Apply the Rewrite_Root rule to the Request Rules

By matching '/' and rewriting it to the desired value, you can force requests to a certain resource or directory.
