Weird, weird apache2 problem

Apache2 has been working great for the past few months. But now I notice that when connecting to http://localhost/ I get the apache error page. I have a "index.php" file in /var/www/ which untill now has been working great.

I also have this line in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf:
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.cgi index.xhtml
The weird thing, though, is that when I connect to http://localhost/index.php manually I get the index page to load just fine.

I've tried making a index.html file just to try something but it didn't work as it should either.

Is there anything I might have accidently changed that could have caused this? I don't recall tweaking the configuration files, though... Is it maybe just that the current unstable apache2 is broken? I did do an upgrade recently...

Any thoughts?

Have you tried shuting down apache and restarting it?
Is there some issues when you look at /var/log/apache2/error.log?
