Fedora 11 - Directory Listing not working


I recently installed Fedora 11 and having some problems with Directory Listing. Basically, I want to have a folder that just list the files in there ( so it doesn't have index.html ) so users can download. Follow instructions from Apache web site couldn't make it to work so I'm hoping someone who has the same issue can give me a headup on this. Thanks.

You'll need the following in your <Directory /> directive:

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

Still the same


Added that into the <Directory /> directive and still getting Forbidden 403 when trying to browse the directory.

It turns out that Apache introduces a new folder call modsecurity.d

After going to the *_50_outbound.conf, I need to remove the line where it blocks directory listing.

Once done, restart the server and it works now.
