I don't have any suggestions about your index.* files not being served,
though it sounds like there is some unintended redirection occurring.

However you can turn the directory file listing off by adding this line

"Directory listing denied" or whatever

The .htaccess file will affect the directory it is in and all its

This was one of the first things I changed when I got my on-rev account.
They are set up rather insecurely by default, in my view.
