Version Apache: 2.0

I want that it is showing this directory that contains .htaccess. I
placed the option “IndexOptions ShowForbidden” however when I was to
restart the Apache appears the following message:

[root@webserver ~]# apachectl stop
Syntax error on line 437 of /usr/local/etc/apache2/httpd.conf:
Invalid directory indexing option

<Directory /data/domains/eacsoftware/www/downloads>
        AllowOverride AuthConfig
        IndexOptions ShowForbidden
