Mini Server File Listing

Recommended Posts

I have been reading the Mini Server Wiki Articles (Just finished 3, about to start 4) when I decided to try and enable folder listing in one of my folders. I did it by adding

<Directory "/www/list">
Options Indexes
</Directory>

to the .htaccess, unfortunately this did not work. It gave a 404 error saying it couldn't find localhost:80/list (the folder is full of random files so I can see a list).

 

My apache config is basically exactly the same as at the end of the Server 3 article, any help would be appreciated.

The mini-servers are reduced in functionality when enabling additional features you may need to add additional modules. The above is a typical case you need to add the module: mod_autoindex.so to folder \udrive\usr\local\apache2\modules

 

Apache loads this module using the following line:

LoadModule autoindex_module modules/mod_autoindex.so

 

Add the above to the end of section: Modules in file httpd.conf

Folder: \udrive\usr\local\apache2\conf

 

Restart the server so Apache loads the module.

 

In your .htaacess file change this:

 

Options Indexes

 

To:

 

Options Indexes

 

Note 1: not allowed in htaccess files.

 

Note 2: If you put .htaccess in the root folder “www” all folders bellows this will display a folder listing if no index page found.

 

Note 3. If you place the file in folder “list” only that folder and its sub-folders are targeted.

 

Alternative:

 

While in httpd.conf add the following to the end of section: Access control

 

Options Indexes

 

remove the line “Options Indexes “ from your .htaccess file

 

This will target only folder “list” and it’s sub-folders

 

If you wish to target the root and all sub-folders just add the line to this section as shown:

 

Options Indexes

AllowOverride All

Order allow,deny

Allow from all

 

One final note, to obtain mod_autoindex.so check out the support page

 

All the best

Ric :D
