Openbmc-test-automation checking service root URL "/"

Yes, it works after I install "phosphor-webui" package in my bmc. 
And the BMCWEB_ENABLE_STATIC_HOSTING compile flag is enable in default in bmcweb.

Then I can get some binary response by running
curl -k https://${bmc}/ --output

and encoding by
curl -k -H "Accept-Encoding: gzip" https://${bmc}/ --output - | gunzip | more

then see the readable page info.
Thank you for the information, it's very helpful.

Yup, the URI "/" is supposed to be the webui.
By default, it is phosphor-webui's login page, but be noted that it could be in a compressed format.
