    I have a feeling this is due to the segfault problem that has plauged
prebuilt RPM installs of Apache when used with RT..  To the best of my
knowledge, noone has tracked down the issue completely, other than compiling
apache, perl, modperl, etc from source.  This seems to solve that problem.

    This problem seems to be with the indexing directives in your apache
configuration..  If you have mod_dir enabled make sure you have a line
similar to the following in your httpd.conf file..  ps, note the presence of

DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php index.php3
