web site home page displays path in browser

I am running Apache 2 (I think) and when I type the URL of my default web site as what gets displayed in the browser is ""
My guess is the web Server is pointing to an undesired path but how can I modify this behavior?

Uh - maybe set <DocumentRoot> in your httpd.conf?

Also make sure the <Directory> section for the document root *doesn't* have "Indexes" enabled, and make sure it has an "index.html" file (or equivalent file: like "index.htm", "index.php", etc)
