Preventing directory listing

Reply with quote

Typically servers are setup to prevent directory listing, but often they aren't. If you have a directory full of downloads or images that you don't want people to be able to browse through, add the following line to your .htaccess file...
Code:
IndexIgnore *

The * matches all files. If, for example, you want to prevent only listing of images, use...
Code:
IndexIgnore *.gif *.jpg
