Placing anything on the WWW is a security issue.  You can play
hide-n-seek games but overall how can you be sure all your data is

To answer your question create an html file and call it index.html and
place in all the directories you do not want people seeing your file
listing.  Next edit httpd.conf and mask all the files you dont want
people to see in the individual file listings using IndexIgnore.
Lastly, in the httpd.conf, turn off Indexes (see Options.)
