what version of apache are you running?
Did u do a restart of apache? (it shouldnt need this, but who knows)
Are you sure that you're placing the files in the right directory?
Are the permissions set.
Are u sure that that's the page it looks for first? Look in /etc/httpd.conf to make sure that thats the first page it loads. Give more info in post
