This is an Apache question, not a PHP one. I don't know if your Apache 
configuration file is named apache.conf or httpd.conf under Windows, but 
whatever it is, check these settings:

ServerRoot - should be set to the location where Apache is installed.
DocumentRoot = set to where your web files are located.
DirectoryIndex - should be set to the default file names, e.g index.htm, 
index.html, index.php

plus one more, which automatically has theeffect of adding a trailing slash 
to an URL, so that you do not get a directory listing.

This is a start - Miles
