How to disable directory listing
« on: May 08, 2016, 07:09:32 AM »
Hi all. I installed cwp on my vps but sounds like directory browsing is enabled and i added following code on httpd.conf but it not works at all:
Options -Indexes

I have inserted it in many places even in my domain directory but it not works.
Please help me.
Thanks.

create .htaccess file and add Options -Indexes
or add Options -Indexes in you existing .htaccess file

in root folder of website files (in public_html)

Thank you. I was inserted it in there but seems the file was not changed at that time! this time tried changing that file from cwp root filemanager2 instead of  ftp and that worked.

Also i was inserted it in /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf but it was not working there. Why ?
Thanks.

Hello, there.

I have been using CWP Panel more than 1 year. Really thanks founder&contributers to give us such nice platform.

Please follow this small modification for disable "Directory indexing" or "Directory Listing" on all server-side.

hmm.. i added an .htaccess with Options -Indexes but still get 500 Internal Server error
Did also try recommended edit to \usr\local\apache\conf\extra\httpd-userdir.conf
Also 500 Internal Server error with log files indicating "htaccess: Options not allowed here"
