Or, if you don't have access to the main httpd.conf file, just put a
DirectoryIndex line in a .htaccess file in your root folder that lists all
possible indexes, followed by your default front page:

DirectoryIndex index.html index.shtml index.htm index.php index.php3

So, if non of the first 5 file names are found in the directory, Apache will
redirect to your front page (assumption is your frontpage is called
index.php, if it's not, change the last value, but leave the /).
