directories listing contents


Recommended Posts

Is it a problem if the directories list all the contents if you type in the path such as: www.xxxxxx.com/catalog/images?


I found that if I put a file named index.html in the directory it does not list the contents.


Is there an easier way to fix this? This also just started happening when I shifted my website from www.xxxxx.com/catalog to just www.xxxxx.com

Usually there is some sort of setting in your control panel for that. "Directory Browsing" or something like that.


If you have cpanel it's under site management tools> index manager


You figured out how to get around it with the index page...that works too.


It's only a problem if you leave access open to anything sensitive...your image directory is probably harmless...but I prefer to have the browsing disabled.
