    Well, I guess if you don't have an* file then the directory contents are displayed
unless you have touched some of the original configuration of Apache 2.0 (in referring to
this version).
    So I mean, that if you install apache and you set a directory below your web root and
this directory doesn't have an index file, then the ftp (based on web or webfolders) are displayed.
    Try it and tell me.

    I want my ftp directory to be viewable via http.  How is this possible under apache?

    I've setup a virtual host that points to my ftp directory.  When I view the ftp site through
my browser, I get a forbidden error.
    It says that either the directory is read protected or I don't have an index file.  Is
it possible for apache to generate the index
    file itself such that it would display the contents of the ftp directory?

    The directory is /var/ftp

    /var/ftp  has permission bits 755
    /var has permission bits 755
