I have a new Apache 2.2 server with PHP5 installed and everything works great. Except...
If I try to access a directory where the index page has a php extension (index.php) it just lists the directory contents and does not parse the php file automatically. If the extension was html or htm it works fine. If I type in the exact "directory/index.php" it works fine. It just seems that the server will not recognize any php file unless I use the exact file name.  Am I making sense?
How do I tell the server to run/open .html, .htm, .shtml and also .php?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Open you httpd.conf file and search for the following line:
DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var
Now add a space after index.html.var and add index.php

Now save the httpd.conf file and restart Apache. index.php files should now be run automatically when in a directory.

WOW! I looked and looked for something like that but never saw it. Must be tired. Thanks for the help. All works great now.
