Question apache index.html doesn't show up but index.php do


hello,

as you see from title I have the problem that if I type:

www.mydomain.com

The page index.html can't open, and only that I see are the icons of the files and directories in the root direcotry of the domain.(apache list directory contents)

If I make an index.php file and type www.mydomain.com then index.php file works.

why is like that?

best regards
zoff

look for this in your apache conf files, it is usually commented out.
uncomment and restart apachectl restart

Code:
#
# DirectoryIndex: Name of the file or files to use as a pre-written HTML
# directory index.  Separate multiple entries with spaces.
#
<IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex index.html
</IfModule>
