you need a directive
DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

in the main server config _OUTSIDE_ of the directory sections. This will
set it as the defaults to use. It is order specific so if you want php
first, list it first. If you want it different inside a specifi
directory, you can change with a 
<Directory /path/to/foo>
DirectoryIndex index.htm index.php index.html
