apache directory visibility


I am rebuilding a machine that has been hacked into, and I am in need of some apache help. I have a RH 9.0 with: httpd-2.0.40-21.9 installed.

Here is what is occuring: works, but comes up with the "Apache 2.0 Test Page". If i point a browser to: i get a webpage that I placed in the machine dir (using an index.html file).

How do I get rid of this test page and put in a listing of all the directories that I have to view on my webpage (i.e. Index page of the webpage dirs).

If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hello again,

I figured this one out:

There is something called: Auto-Index, located within the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file:

# Disable autoindex for the root directory, and present a
# default Welcome page if no other index page is present.
#<LocationMatch "^/$">
# Options -Indexes
# ErrorDocument 403 /error/noindex.html

By commenting this block out, I was given an index to my listed dirs.

Does anyone know if this creates a security problem in any way?
