Wrong on both counts (sorry, but really it's good news for you).

1) You can have the server send any files you want through the PHP parser. 
The easiest thing is to edit the line that looks like this in your 
httpd.conf file:

   AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

Just add extra extensions:

   AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .html

2) You can have the server use and file(s) you want as the "default" when 
a user requests a directory. Find the httpd.conf line that looks like 

   DirectoryIndex index.html

And add as many other file names as you want:

   DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

So you can solve your problem in either of two ways (actually there are 
plenty of others but these are the most straightforward).
