(Sorry for the probably very basic question - but I'm having no luck searching for the answer!)
How do I configure the server to automatically view the index.php page?
I have things up and running, but when I go to a page with an index.php, the server does not automatically use that - e.g. if I go to http://localhost:8080/wordpress, I get a directory listing - clicking index.php will then bring up the right page. I'm guessing this is the same reason that comments don't work right. When I click on a comment, I get something like http://localhost:8080/wordpress/?p=1#comments. If I manually change the URL to /wordpress/index.php?p=1#comments then things are OK.
