Open your conf/httpd.conf file and search for 'DirectoryIndex'

<IfModule mod_dir.c>
     DirectoryIndex index.html

If you want index.php to be used in preference to index.html add
index.php before index.html:

     DirectoryIndex index.php index.html

or put whatever other file name you like in there.
