Prevent users surfing my /htdocs dir

Postby alessandro80 » 17. April 2011 16:03

Hi all,

i run xampp with several vhosts. One thing i want to change is that if a user modifys the domain adress for example: into (and this page/domain isnt found) he can browse the whole /htdocs/site-a site-b site-c directory.
Wehre can i config this that if a users surfs my domain he can´t get access by modifing the url to the whole htdocs directory.

Thank you in advance!

Best Regards,
