apache 1.3.29 directoryindex and chmod

Hi, I'm new here and first would like to say what a wonderful forum, and thank you to the peole that make it possible. Ok my problem:

I had Apache 1.3.28 installed and running perfectly for about a month...I recently upgraded to 1.3.29 and my htdocs/* permissions changed somehow and said Forbidden when trying to access any file from I stupidly did a 'chmod -R 755 /var/www/htdocs' and now everything works....but for some reason it is listing every directory, even though I have a index.htm in every directory and DirectoryIndex directive is set there a bit i have to turn on with chmod or what? Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks

fixed it. a little digging and i found the new apache install symlinked /usr/sbin/apachectl to the wrong binary...pointed it to the right file and everything works again.
