Which file is displayed when accessing a directory? (DirectoryIndex)

When using your web browser to access your domain or a certain subdirectory directly without specifying a specific file (e.g. http://www.your-own-domain.ch instead of http://www.your-own-domain.ch/contact.html), the web server searches sequentially for files in this list:

  1. index.html
  2. index.wml
  3. index.cgi
  4. index.shtml
  5. index.js
  6. index.php
  7. index.phtml
  8. index.php4
  9. index.htm
