[K12OSN] Apache2 and index.php or index.html

at the /etc/apache2 prompt, if I do:
grep -r DirectoryIndex *

it finds it in two places, mods-available and mods-enabled and both have the right settings.

But it still doesn't work without keying the index.html or index.php into the browser after the hostname like http://hostname/index.php 

Any other ideas?

(This worked the same under Apache 1.3 by the way: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/mod_dir.html
