Subject RE: [users@httpd] problem listing directories in apache
Date Thu, 29 Aug 2002 07:34:42 GMT
I think the thing you need is:

Options Indexes 

in the directory container of the directory you want to list. More simply, if you don't mind
this for all directories, just put it at server-config level. Check the docs for the Options
directive - there are lots of others..

Rgds,

Owen Boyle
