Apache Index Files


Does anyone know how to change apache to allow directories to be browesable?

In an ideal situation I would allow browseing in /home/*/public_html/*
and not in the root.


I am using Mandrake 8.2 RC1 if that helps any. I tried netconf stuff but that messed up telnet and ftp login times. (There is another post about that somewhere around here)

Go to apache.org.

There is a directive called Indexes that makes the files available for download. Also look into alias directive.

Alais allows you to show /home/public/docs as /docs



<Directory /home/public/docs
Options Indexes
</Directory>

If you allow users to login then they should be able to browse anywhere they normally do unless you use chroot or DocumentRoot for a virtualuser.

If DocumentRoot is /home then they could browse in anything under /home

It's not really a great idea to do this, you should definately be using https SSL before sending any passwords or anything.

Theres a lot of info in the manual if you installed the apache-manual rpm

If you make DocumentRoot /var/www/html or whatever the default is then you need to set another Virtualuser with the other DocumentRoot

This is confusing me. I have been reading all over and it seems like there are many options to do things I don't really need to do. I just want to have directory listing if no index.* is present.

Like the page that says

Index of /

folder
files


----
Served out by Apache 1.3.12 from 68.51.114.106

something like that.
I would have thought there was just a switch in the conf file,
but I can't find it.

Maybe I am trying too hard.

that should be the default behavior if no index file is present, thats what mine does.

Y ou'd like to think so, but mine apparently doesn't in RPM mode. In source install it did, but I wanted the RPM this time around on this install.

make sure this is ok...

LoadModule dir_module modules/mod_dir.so


make sure you have this..


AddModule mod_dir.c


and if you have this...

<IfModule mod_dir.c>
DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.shtml index.php index.php4 index.p
hp3 index.phtml index.cgi
</IfModule>


try it like this

#<IfModule mod_dir.c>
DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.shtml index.php index.php4 index.p
hp3 index.phtml index.cgi
#</IfModule>

Hi, I appreciate the help I have been getting, but still nothing is working. This is horrible. I thought there was some sort of allow indexing switch or something, but I didn't get that to work either. Apache ticks me off sometimes. But thanks everyone.
