Apache Server only displaying "Test" page. Fedora Core 4

Alrighty, I'm running Fedora Core 4 and am currently setting up an http server. I'm a linux newbie so I thought I'd come here and ask you guys.

I've got the server to work so far. If I go there on my internet browser it works just fine. The problem lies in the fact that it displays the test page. I set permissions so I could access the file /var/www/html and placed index.html in that file. Unfortunately, it still comes up with the test page.
I have checked and double-checked to make sure that the filename is correct and the directory is correct. Perhaps I have the wrong config in my httpd server? I have no idea and would like some help.

Another quick thing, I'm wondering if there's a way to get an 'administrator' account that has access to all files and folders without needing to change the permissions in terminal beforehand.

sounds like your documentroot is set to somewhere else. the test page is not somethign encoded into apache or anything... it's a normal file sitting somewhere, so it's looking in a different place than /var/www/html for the data. see what httpd.conf says.

Thank you very much. I got it all working since some things in httpd.conf were missing >.<

Thanks again.
