Apache by default gives a 404 Error page, when the document you've requested does not exist.
So I guess you have changed somehow the "ErrorDocument" directive in httpd.conf resulting in a directory listing.

You should post httpd.conf in order to be able to help you.

lets say You dont have index.html file or index.php... then Apache will show You the content of the folder. How to protect it ?

I have forgot which option is responsible for that.

This what I know , You can setup this here


<Directory /var/www>

Options .... -Indexes ?

</Directory>


Do You know ?

Yes, if you don't have "Indexes" among the other Options, or you use -Indexes, apache will stop the directory listing.
