Okay, I added those three lines to my
/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/sitename.conf file:

                DirectoryIndex index.html
#              DirectoryIndex index.php
                AllowOverride None
                Require all granted

        <IfModule dir_module>
            DirectoryIndex index.php index.html

        ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
        <Directory "/usr/lib/cgi-bin">
                AllowOverride None

and restarted Apache2.

Now when I browse to, I get the index.html file, and when I
browse to, I still get the index.html file. So
nothing has changed.

I'm still doing something wrong?

I'd be happy to go the .htaccess route, but at this point, I don't have a
clue as to where to begin with this information you've provided. I think
you've only demonstrated that .htaccess has complexity, not that you've
demonstrated the specific complexity I'm needing to reach my goal?
