Ubuntu + Apache2 + ftp?


i currently have a website hosted with apache2. (all goes fine). However i would like to display a directory listing(a separate page).

For example. When someone clicks on a link for an html page it takes them to a page which displays all the files in a folder/directory that are available for download.(would this be an ftp? or something else?)

I hope that makes sense

Cheers

Apache can do a directory listing automatically, so your users can click on a filename on that listing to d/l the file. To do this there must be no index page in that directory and depending on your apache configuration you might need to add Indexes among the other options:
Code:
<Directory "/path/to/somedir">
  Options Indexes
  Allow from all
  ...
</Directory>

If it has to be a html page, a bit of PHP code will do the trick (if you have configured apache to use PHP)
Else you should be able to configure apache so it displays the contents of a directory (although I can not remember how) instead of a default page.

And no, it's not FTP in this case.

I'm not sure on php.. i'll have to learn that. (it's about time anyway).
However i have a default page in my virtual host (a module from memory). Would i need to move that module to the inside of my <directory /path to website files> as it's currently not in that section

I'm not sure what you mean by default page. If you mean an index page, then the file listing will not work because apache will use that page instead of showing the contents of the directory.
