Subject Enabling directory browsing throughout server?
Date Mon, 11 Feb 2002 17:19:05 GMT
Could someone please tell me how to enable directory browsing in Apache on
Windows 2000. I know this is a dumb question and I shouldn't be asking it,
but I've read the FAQ, I've tried many options and I'm just going to ask it

Perhaps some kind person could just explain it to me.

Here's what I've tried already.

1. I've searched for <files ~> and it's not there. Instead, I found
<Files ~ "^\.ht">
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
so i changed Deny from all, to Allow from all. No good. Still says forbidden
on this server.

2. I've gone into window and enabled web sharing and directory sharing for
all comers. No good.

3. I have found that i can enable it for a particular directory using, eg.
    Alias /projects/ "C:/projects/zopelike/"

<Directory "C:/1/f2s/webmonke/archive">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews

but i want to enable it for the whole server.

4. I've tried putting
<Directory />
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
as the default setting.

5. My document root is defined as follows.
<Directory "C:/1/f2s/webmonke">

# 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 MultiViews

# This controls which options the .htaccess files in directories can
# override. Can also be "All", or any combination of "Options", "FileInfo",
# "AuthConfig", and "Limit"
    AllowOverride None

# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

6. I've tried changing that to AllowOverride All.

My version of Apache is 1.3.14.
