Apparently, apache2 doesn't like index.html and index.php being in the same directory. . .

I deleted the index.html and it works now. . . go figure. . .

Thanks for your help!


P.S. the web server filesystem was directly copied from another server that was working fine as it was. The old one was also running apache2. Wonder what is different between the two. . .

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