           Summary: The default page reads "It works!" and is unprofessional
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.4
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: All
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: nslater@gmail.com
                CC: nslater@gmail.com


The default apache index page is installed in the current location:

/var/www/apache2-default/index.html

On my system the content of this file is:

<html><body><h1>It works!</h1></body></html>

Also, this file has no trailing newline which is malformed.

The default apache site should be informative with pointers to documentation,
not a childish one line statement such as this. It looks highly unprofessional.

I appreciate why the original page was removed - because too many people were
contacting Apache about sites which had nothing to do with them, but there has
to be an alternative to this. Even a 404 message would be better than this.
