Restricting access to directories that have no index

Postby Toby B. » 09. January 2005 06:00

Ok, here is what I am looking to do..

1.) prevent access to directories that have no index file (i.e. index.html or index.php). So that people cannot see the directories and are greeted with a "Access Denied"....

For example

Access granted to:
www.mysite.com/images/image01.jpg

But is the person tried to view:
www.mysite.com/images/
they would be unable to view the directory...


I would like to set this up so that is server wide, not per directory...

Make sense?

In your Apache httpd.conf file, remove the Indexes attribute from the Options directive(s).

For example, change:
Code: Select all
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews Includes ExecCGI

to:
Code: Select all
Options FollowSymLinks MultiViews Includes ExecCGI
.
