I swung by there this afternoon.  I was not able to fix the issue.  One 
of the root directories got renamed apparently.  The only issue not 
fixed yet is apache will not load index.php but it will load index.html. 
  The root directory has both an index.html and index.php.  Renaming the 
index.html should cause apache to load the php one but it instead causes 
it to load the defualt apache test page and throws this error:

Directory index forbidden by Option /var/www/html/

Which makes it sound like the DirectoryIndex option in http.conf is not 
set, and it wasn't.  But when I added index.php to the beginning of it, 
it still had no change.  So I don't know.  Guess I will have to play 
with it some more.  Permissions where correct to.
