changing the default file apache web server looks for


if navigating to http://server where server is my linux server's address running apache, it automatically loads index.html, if it exists. I'd like to change it to index.php.

I've gone through the httpd.conf and read as much as I can find, but havent' found the answer.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

In your httpd.conf where it says:

<IfModule mod_dir.c>
DirectoryIndex index.html
</IfModule>

Just put index.php after index.html. Mine looks like this.

<IfModule mod_dir.c>
DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.shtml index.shtm index.php
</IfModule>

In Slackware 10.2 it is line 441 in the httpd.conf.

Perfect! Thanks! I don't know why I didn't figure this out on my own...
