Subject [users@httpd] Preventing directory listings except for one user
Date Mon, 26 Aug 2002 20:28:06 GMT


I'm trying to give one user the ability to see a directory listing and
only let others see the particular file <page> that they were seeking.
What I'd like to avoid is a situation where some gets a page from a
directory and then backspaces over the file name to see the whole index.
I created a blank index.html page to prevent this but I do need to allow
one user <an admin type> to see what files are in the directory.


Is this do-able and would it involve using Overrides?


Is it possible to not have an index.html and still not allow users to
see the file directory listing?
