Im trying to call up my index.php file by default on my webserver instead of having to actually type the path. (for example) I want to type :

localhost/website

instead of having to type:

localhost/website/index.php

I think I need to modify it somewhere on my httpd config file on apache webserver but I'm not sure where to do it. Any clues?

ok thats what I have. It does pull up on the default directory. But I want to be able to do that in a subdirectory within the default directory.

ex:

localhost/defaultdirectory/subdirectory

instead of:
localhost/defaultdirectory/subdirectory/index.php

doesnt it work with the lines i posted above for all directories?
after DirectoryIndex can stand any filename you want to be the index.

common are:

index.htm index.html index.php index.php3 default.htm

it works in my default directory, but its not working in a subdirectory that I put it in. I get a "page cannot be displayed". even index.html files aren't called up in a subdirectory. I have to actually type /index.html.

you know what, it actually works if I type the / afterwards.

ex:

localhost:/defaultdirectory/subdirectory/

instead of:

localhost/defaultdirectory/subdirectory

I shouldn't have to type the / on the end should I? I noticed on other my hosted website that I don't have to.

Oh shit this came up before and I found the answer. It has to do with your server config.

Basically Apache configured to deal with the trailing slash. It'a actually in the apache FAQ

cool. That helps. I just had to change my server name to the loop back address to enable it. But I think that will eliminate any outside access wouldn't it? Tell me what you see through my ip address. What do you see?

in my case it was a dns misconfiguration in the LAN.

I think the best way is to put the (external) IP as your server name.

This has worked fine for me with every server, single or multi host, that I have set up

Also, make sure that your IP is referenced in your hosts file, just to avoid a few more problems

e.g. in /etc/hosts:
24.158.64.58 machinename machinename.my.domain.name

This should sort out the problem.
