i recently upgraded apache to 2.4.4 and php to 5.4, i didnt like the fact that 5.4 didnt have support for suphp ironed completely out, so i reverted back to 5.3. all of my sites work fine. but any new sites i create dont seem to recognize that php is installed, it blatantly disregards index.php unless i type it in on the address bar mysite.com/index.php

any ideas as to what might be causing this?

That means that index.php is not included in Apache's DirectoryIndex directive.

1st check in WHM-> Service Configuration -> Apache Configuration -> DirectoryIndex Priority

That is probably ok if all the old sites work.

Then check .htaccess in those new sites where index.php is not recognized as an index file, if there are DirectoryIndex directives without index.php
