Displaying Directory Contents In A CS Webpage
(Redirected from DIsplaying Directory Contents In A CS Webpage)
In some cases, you might want the CS webserver to display the contents of a directory (located under your
public_html directory) when people view that directory in their web browser. This won't work automatically because we have disabled directory indexes to prevent people from accidentally disclosing files without intending to do so.
You can still display the contents of a directory using one of the two following methods:
Method 1: Use an index.html File
You can create an
index.html file that contains links to the contents of the directory.
Method 2: Use a .htaccess File
You can add a
.htaccess file (don't forget the leading dot) to the directory with the following contents:
Make sure your
.htaccess file has
604 permissions, just like all other CS webpages need. If in doubt:
chmod 604 .htaccess
The settings in a
.htaccess file apply to the directory it is in and to any of its subdirectories (recursively).
