[Mono-list] mod_mono ignoring DirectoryIndex?

Hello all,

I have set up an Apache virtual host to work with mod_mono. My ASP.NET
application doesn't work yet because of some Windows-specific
filesystem access. This is expected. However, when I access the root
of the virtual host, I get an error message telling me of the problem
as mono attempts to run default.aspx, despite the fact that I have no
DirectoryIndex directive with default.aspx as an argument. There is an
index.html in the root directory; and I expected that it should be

So in addition to the "main server" DirectoryIndex directive that
contains index.html, I added the following inside the virtual host:

DirectoryIndex index.html

It is the only DirectoryIndex directive in the virtual host. Still,
the problem occurs.

Suggestions are welcome.

Thank you,

p.s.. This is my first time ever using one of these mailing lists. Let
me know if I've done anything wrong or ignored any etiquette.
