Dreamweaver with Apache HTTP web server

We are using Dreamweaver with Apache HTTP server and everytime we try to preview a web page in a browser (IE8) it wants us to download the index.php - I assuming something is not setup correctly. We are port 8080 as we are already us port 80 for another web program (SugarCRM).
In the error log I have found the following error but it means nothing to me so not sure what to do next. Error: [Fri Nov 19 11:37:34 2010] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: c:/Programs Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/htdocs/favicon.ico
I have checked this folder and yes it is missing but how do I rectify this. I have also included the full error log so you can see if there is anything else that is wrong that I may have missed. I am a novice with Apache so any help would be wonderful.   error.log
access.log
install.log

You don't have to worry about the favicon file.

Can't comment on the index.php part of the question.

Is there anyone out there who can advise why we are being asked to open a file rather than getting a preview of the website page created. Please help as I am new to Apache.

This did not answer my question really. I am still stuck not knowing why the index.php wants to download instead of just showing the webpage created. Closing this question as no one seems to want to answer it.
