I installed Apache server and it is working.  I just wanted to change the default file from index.html.en to something else but I can not find it.  I looked at /www/conf/httpd.conf and it does not point to a file just to the directory which is /www/htdocs.  I also looked at the srm.conf and it just has comments.  What do I need to do?

There is a directive called DirectoryIndex inside of the httpd.conf which you can change. The default value is index.html. So, just edit your httpd.conf and look for a line that says:

DirectoryIndex index.html

Change the index.html to what you want, save your changes and restart apache.

That should do it.

Hope that helps.

I have a question, when I look in the directory they are a few files that say index.html.en, index.html.es, index.html.xx how does it know to go to index.html.en?

It knows to go use index.html.en because of the directive in the httpd.conf that I mentioned above. Most likely the DirectoryIndex directive is set to index.html.en
