You can configure different index file names for Apache to check for. e.g index.html, index.htm, index.php, default.htm
I had one webserver where it would only accept default.htm as the file, and didn't allow .htaccess files.

It is my understanding that when you open a page the PHP server looks for index.php in the site root directory, and loads it. As a result the working directory of the page will be the root directory of the site. I have always worked on this assumption, and it has always been correct. On the other hand Stewart thinks that I cannot rely this, and am likely to get into trouble as a result. Are there any systems in which my assumption will not be correct?
