How do I display or change a default page other than index.html or index.php under Apache web server?
I am using two methods to change Index page in public_html and any folders as wanted.

Method 1:
Open your Apache configuration file httpd.conf
Code:
nano httpd.conf
Find out line that read as follows:
Code:
DirectoryIndex
Now set it as per your requirements:
Code:
DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm default.htm index.php index.pl
Save and close the file.

Method 2:

Putting this code into .htaccess file

Code:
DirectoryIndex firstpage.html index.htm index.html index.php
I hope it helps will help you!

I like the method #2, thanks @karlkoeller for sharing these tips!

But the method #1 can affect to all websites on the sever without configuring more on some specific websites/accounts.
