How attributes appear on your page depends on your template. In the default Magento template, the main product description, and any other attributes, are displayed in tabs below the product image. It looks like you have a custom theme installed, if you revert it to the default theme, you may be able to see the description and other attributes there and edit your template accordingly.

To make sure that an attribute is available to display in your theme, make sure that Visible on Product View Page on Front-end is set to Yes on the Edit Product Attribute screen in the admin.

As for the problem with the index.php, this answer may help: Re-index error: Cannot initialize the indexer process
