How do I prevent file and folder listings when someone accesses my site
When someone uses my url and then /downloads or example www.mysite/downloads they get a listing of the files in that folder. How can I prevent that? Would making a folder directly under my Home folder work ok for that? I have made a folder called test and it seems to work for my simple attempts. Is this a good way to do this?
Thanks for the question about preventing file or folder listings on your site. This can be done through the .htaccess file. Follow this article: Preventing the Index Of Page in .htaccess. This will prevent the listing of the file and folders in your site.
