Have web server load index.html instead of index.php as default

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have a webserver set up using CentOS and Apache
I need the webserver to load index.html as the default instead of index.php.

The httpd.conf file has "DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var index.php"
I have a .htaccess file in my html directory with this as the first line "DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php"

I've got another .htaccess file in the subfolder that I actually need the change in with this as the first line "DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php"

What am I missing? Why won't it load index.html instead of index.php
