Apache and Directory Listing

When you point your browser to a folder it should display the index.html or index.php file of that folder.

For example if you point your browser to http://mayuonline.com/test it should display the index.html file under the directory test.

I configured Apache to run on my local machine and I found that when I point my browser to a folder it lists the files in that folder, instead of pointing to index.php.

searched and found the solution for the problem.

  • Open your http.conf file in Notepad (which can be found in the folder where apache is installed)
  • Search for DirectoryIndex
  • You will find something like "DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var"
  • Replace it with "DirectoryIndex index.html index.php index.html.var"
Now your browser will point to index.php files too
