In you apache conf file probably located in


You need to make sure you have this line:

DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

if not add the index.php and restart apache.

You also need to make sure you have:

Include /etc/httpd/mod_php.conf 

or whatever path it is in.

Also while in there you may want to turn off server tokens. It will add an extra layer of security.

Also check permissions on your index.php file to make sure they match the owner and system privileges. If not then chown and chmod the file appropriately.

All these edits will require a httpd restart.
