httpd DirectoryIndex directive problem -not finding index.html

I'm running httpd-2.0.52 on centos 4.3 its new installation.

httpd.conf DirectoryIndex command is:
directoryindex index.html index.php
The is no DirectoryIndex command in any included file and no .htaccess file.

Problem occurs when specify http://sitename By default, index.html should be served up.
index.html and index.php both exist in the DocumentRoot dir. httpd serves up index.php by default and not index.html, despite the directoryindex command.

Despite re-editing httpd.conf, saving, and restarting httpd, problem persists. index.html is served when referenced explicit, and if index.php is renamed,
index.html is served.

Regards,
Addady

This is a silly question but, are you sure you're editing the right httpd.conf?

do a:  ps aux | grep httpd

to find out which apache daemon is running.  then...

do a:  /path/to/daemon/httpd -V

and pay close attention to the following lines:

-D HTTPD_ROOT="/etc/httpd"
 -D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE="conf/httpd.conf"

so in this example the configuration file of the running apache server is:

/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

/etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf

cat /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
...
Include conf.d/*.conf
...


cat /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf
...
DirectoryIndex index.php
