I'm running WebSphere V5.1 under Red Hat Linux 9. I'm trying to view the websphere configuration documentation under a browser. They are stored under the {root installed directory of websphere}/WebSphere/{AppServer,DeploymentManager}/web/configDocs. The page I like to get to is index.html.
(1) What is the URL path name that I should use in order to view index.html on my browser?
(2) Is there any configuration change I need to make in the default httpd.conf?

    Set the everyone read permission on the directory and all subdirectory webshphere root directory your problem shoul be resolve if you still face that permiison then you have set the default page in the httpd.conf
    Go to httpd.conf file
    <IfModule mod_dir.c>
        DirectoryIndex index.html, index.php, index.cfm

    Thank you Abs. Both steps you mentioned are there already. But you didn't mention what's the URL one enters in a browser in order to get to that "index.html"

    Hi Mlton :

    If you set default page when you access that directory then the default page automatiaclly open .

    for example

    if your site is

    and your index.html in the /websphere/index.html

    then if you set default page from the DirectoryIndex index.html, index.php, index.cfm

    then when you access

    the default page automatic open

    so page prioruty is
    1. Index.html
    2 index.php

    you can change this priority as you like if you want to open the index.php then its top of the directory index
