How to modify Apache directory listing style?

June 2, 2021 / General Discussion

If someone visits a directory on your hosting account that does not have an index file (index.html, index.php, index.htm, etc.), they will either see a list of files in that directory or receive a banned warning. This prevents them from accessing the directory’s contents. You can grant or deny permission to view the contents of the folder. You can also choose the type of information that appears on the page if you display the contents.

Folder indexing generally disabled on our servers to improve the security of our customers’ accounts.

Indexing Models:- When someone accesses a folder with standard indexing, only the file names displayed, with no other information about the files in that location. To use this type of indexing, place the following lines in the desired folders. htaccess file:

1.Options +Indexes

2.IndexOptions –FancyIndexing

Creative Indexing:- Fancy indexing displays the files as well as additional information about them, such as the date the file was last modified, its size, and description. To use this type of indexing, add the following two lines to the destination folders. htaccess file:

1.Options +Indexes

2.IndexOptions +FancyIndexing

No Indexing:- If you do not want a folder on your account without an index file to display a list of files contained within it, you can disable the indexing functionality. To accomplish this, add the following line to the. htaccess file in the required directory:

Options –Indexes

As a result, if someone tries to open the folder in their browser, they will get a 403 Forbidden message.
