Index file order in DirectoryIndex is not working

Link to this post 28 May 09

I'm currently running Ubuntu v8.04

I have the following in the apache2.conf...

<IfModule dir_module>
DirectoryIndex index.pl index.php index.html
</IfModule>

...and yet index.html always loads first, which I don't want !
I've also tried it in the httpd.conf with the same result.

Is there somewhere else that overrides my DirectoryIndex
with this version Distro, as it worked fine in the previous
version I was running up until April ?

Thanks,
Nick. . . :)

Hi Nick,

Well, for starters a few basic checks:
1) Is your dir_module linked to mods-enabled?
2) Do you have index.pl or index.php in the directory you're trying to access?
3) In which section of the configuration file did you put this directive? VirtualHost, General section, inside <Directory> directive?

Cheers,
Vlad
