Look in your httpd.conf file for this:
------------------------------
# DirectoryIndex: sets the file that Apache will serve if a directory
# is requested.
#
# The index.html.var file (a type-map) is used to deliver content-
# negotiated documents.  The MultiViews Option can be used for the 
# same purpose, but it is much slower.
#
DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var
-----------------------------------
It sound like you don't have Apache set to look for an index.html file

????? Help!

I have set up a Redhat Linux server and I almost have everything set to
use this as a Samba server and an Apache server for my web development
and testing.

I am not using DNS, but resolve in the hosts files on a Windows
computer.

When I enter in my browser "http://www.dawsonsphotographytest.com/" I
get the Apache test page, and the subject message is logged.

When I enter in my browser
"http://www.dawsonsphotographytest.com/index.html" I get the index.html
page.

Can someone help me understand and correct this problem?

Thanks in advance!

Stephen
