Can anyone tell me if instead of having index.html as an index file if I could have

Welcome to my company in Fredericton, New Brunswick.htm

As the index file. How would i do it.
I tryed this but it didn't work.

<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot /var/www/mycompany
DirectoryIndex Welcome to my company in Fredericton, New Brunswick.htm

Yes - Just change:
DirectoryIndex Welcome to my company in Fredericton, New Brunswick.htm

DirectoryIndex "Welcome to my company in Fredericton, New Brunswick.htm"

Spaces in a DirectoryIndex directive denote separate files.

another idea:
ln -s "Welcome to my company in Fredericton, New Brunswick.htm" index.html

just creates a symbolic link to the file
