i have following configuration in my httpd server installed on centos mach locally. for testing reasons

in my /etc/hosts file i place following code
101.168.1.25  www.solutionsbeyond.local
101.168.1.25  forum.solutionsbeyond.local
101.168.1.25  forum2.solutionsbeyond.local

and in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin  admin@solutionsbeyond.local
DocumentRoot  /home/httpd/sb
ServerName www.solutionsbeyond.local
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin  admin@solutionsbeyond.local
DocumentRoot  /home/httpd/test
ServerName forum.solutionsbeyond.local
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin  admin@solutionsbeyond.local
DocumentRoot  /home/httpd/phpbb
ServerName forum2.solutionsbeyond.local
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm
</VirtualHost>

no i have i file index.html on each folder  with sub domain typed in it. Now the problem i am facing is that when i type www.solutionsbeyond.local i see index page displaying Welcome to www.solutionsbeyond.local.

now when i try to go to forum.solutionsbeyond.local i still get to page where it displays "welcome to www.solutionsbeyond.local but i type forum.solutiuonsbeyond.local i get the msg welcome to forum.solutionsbeyond.local what can be the resone behind it and how can i fix it more over i want apache to pick the index.php by default and for that i places

DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm in the virtual directory code but i its not working how can i make it working

Since this is local, we can't see anything you've done. However are you using a windows machine? If so can you edit it's host file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts) and add the following entries;

101.168.1.25  www.solutionsbeyond.local
101.168.1.25  forum.solutionsbeyond.local
101.168.1.25  forum2.solutionsbeyond.local

Apache will pick whatever index page is setup in the default document listing, unless there isn't one specified or the containers are not setup correctly, in which you'll get the default global index page.

By adding the entries to your pc's hosts file, you'll be able to go directly to the sites to see if the issues is just with resolving to the sites or if apache isn't configured correctly.

Did you restart apache after doing the changes? (service httpd restart)
Did you change your DNS records to point to that IP address, or did you do it in your local computer hosts file?
I noticed that in:
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin  admin@solutionsbeyond.local
DocumentRoot  /home/httpd/test
ServerName forum.solutionsbeyond.local
</VirtualHost>

There is no:
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm

entry
