Apache directory listing question


What directive do I have to set in Apache2 so that when a user tries to browse a folder that has just files and no index page, they get a "forbidden" message? Like if I have a folder of pictures say www.myserver.com/pictures, I dont want it to list the folder contents. I only want to allow accesss if the user knows the specific name of a file like www.myserver.com/pictures/mypicture.jpg . It seems that it was like this by default in apache 1.3 but on my Apache2 box it will generate a directory listing instead of the "forbidden" page.

If this is still an issue, check your directives for where it automagically generates dir indexes and turn that off.

In your httpd.conf file you will see something like:
Code:
# This may also be "None", "All", or any combination of "Indexes",
# "Includes", "FollowSymLinks", "ExecCGI", or "MultiViews".
#
# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
# doesn't give it to you.
#
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiView
To disable Indexing, just remove Indexes after the Options listed above.

Cheers.

Is the code bellow wrong?

Code:
<Directory />
  Options -All Multiviews Indexes FollowSymLinks
  AllowOverride None
  <IfModule mod_access.c>
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
  </IfModule>
</Directory>

c'mon isn't there anyone with a working solution ?
I was trying to find an answer for a whole night, if anyone out there has this working on linux box (win ans linux conf files are different) please post.

here is original version of httpd2.conf:
Code:
# First, we configure the "default" to be a very restrictive set of 
# permissions.  
#
# Also, for security, we disable indexes globally
#
#<Directory />
#    Options -Indexes FollowSymLinks
#    AllowOverride None
#</Directory>

#Restricted set of options 
<Directory />
  Options +All -Multiviews
  AllowOverride None
  <IfModule mod_access.c>
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
  </IfModule>
</Directory>

well, i've got a solution myself, as it is pretty important thing for me. Just use Apache 1.3, at least I never had a problem with it.
