Disable directory listing

Postby ASnet0007 » 05. January 2010 11:28

When I type an address of a folder that doesn't have an index.html inside apache displays the contents of that folder. I did do a google search and found that I can create a .htaccess file, but it looks like I would need to do this for all folders and I have alot of folders.

I am very new to webservers but is it possible to disable directory listing on all folders in my site?

Thanks

What version of XAMPP?

Are all your web site folders in the \xampp\htdocs folder?

You just need to look for the file httpd.conf and edit this file.
Search for Indexes in this file and set it to -Indexes.
Restart Apache and then directory listing is switched off for all your folders.
