DirectoryIndex index.htm ensures that when a user requests example.com/folder/ - the canonical URL for a folder or for the index page in a folder - the server uses the content of the index.htm file in that folder to fulfill that request, without telling the user what that file is actually called.
The DirectorySlash directive is also relevant. When user requests example.com/folder for folder name that exists, the server will send a redirect telling the browser to make a new request for example.com/folder/ instead.
Thats the server already do,
I have tested mysite/espanol
and mysite espanol/
and I get my site with/ at the end and without mentioning index.htm
However if I go to mysite homepage from an inner page, then I get index.htm though to that I have that in the link
