No chance to find the answer in the article. -
It's here:
Search for

'DirectoryIndex index.html'

add 'index.shtml'
so it reads

'DirectoryIndex index.html index.shtml'

  • Getting .shtml to work right!

    sudo pico /etc/httpd/httpd.conf
    # DirectoryIndex: Name of the file or files to use as a pre-written HTML
    # directory index. Separate multiple entries with spaces.
    <IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex index.html index.shtml default.html default.shtml index.php index.cgi
    that should get about any default page working.

    I certainly had the same error, but adding index.shtml didn't help. It works as (so the shtml reading must be activated) but when i load it goes to the Apache default page. My DirectoryIndex change looks like so:

    <IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex index.html index.shtml

    Any suggestions?
