Untested (recently), but should work.

Put an .htaccess file in the appropriate directory with this line:

DirectoryIndex index.php

Another way would be to put the .htaccess in the root directory with 
something like:

DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.shtml

The first page to be found in each folder (reading from the left) should 
show up as the default page.
