Thank you for your question on your directory redirect. Showing the directory contents instead of a page is normally because the default index file is not present. I am happy to check your specific URL for you if you wish to provide it.

If you have named all your index files as one specific thing, such as Index.html vs index.html, you can set the Directory Index file name within your htaccess file.

Kindest Regards,
