Why does the index.html page (it works) not display, a directory listing page is displayed instead. Setting are all the install defaults. Index.html is located in /svr/www/htdocs

Can you copy paste your server configuration - in particular DOcumentRoot ? Also what is your DirectoryIndex set to ?

If you specify index.html to DirectoryIndex as noted below:

DirectoryIndex index.html

then a request for http://someweb/ should return http://someweb/index.html if it exists, or would list the directory if it did not. So I guess it is related to something similar
