There are two ways:

1) If your index page is found as a result of DirectoryIndex, you can just set a new DirectoryIndex value in your .htaccess file.  

2) Using mod_rewrite for a specific file:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/?index.php$ /some-other-page.php [NC]

Open in new window

If your replacement page is above or outside the current directory, you may need to set RewriteBase as well.
