Code: Select all
Options Indexes MultiViews

change in
Code: Select all
Options -Indexes MultiViews

restart apache and the directory browsing ist shut down.

I have done what you said. but it didn't work. my xampp version is 1.4.13

there are several lines in the httpd.conf file with the content:
"Options Indexes MultiViews ExecCGI" and only one with:
"Options Indexes MultiViews"

I changed this one to "Options -Indexes MultiViews" and restarted xampp but had no effect.
then I changed in all other lines, and nothing. I'm going crazy.

can someone help me? pleeeease?

tkx again:
