any help would be much appreciated
IMO it helps if you've had experience not using a control panel, try getting familiar with CLI then switching to a control panel.
As for the problem with getting the default index, you'll need to delete the index.html file that's created by ISPCONFIG.
EDIT: My honest advice for now would be to ditch any attempt at using a control panel, try instead using one of the guides over at Linode.
