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.
