Try the browsing the site with the home page name also in the browser like*.htm, where * can be Default or index or the designated
name of the home page. If it works, then the problem is to configure
'Default document setting' in the web server.

If the web server is running on a Windows box, then do the the following

1. Open IIS manager
2. Right click on your web site and select properties.
3. Click on the 'Documents' Tab
4. Enable Default Document. If it is already enabled, then add your name
of the default page here.

Hope this helps
