If a directory on a site does not contain an index file(index.html), it will by default simply list every file in that directory in the visitor's browser.
This could cause security issues. With Index Manager you can turn this feature off.
Step 1: Log into cPanel.
Step 2: Click on the “Index Manager” icon located in the Advanced section of cPanel.
Step 3: To setup Index Manager for the Clients Directory:
There are four settings to choose from.
- The “Default System Setting” allows the directory contents to be shown.
- “No Indexing” does not allow the indexes to be shown.
- “Standard Indexing” prevents browsers from viewing contents of directories that do not contain image files.
- “Fancy Indexing” prevents browsers from viewing contents of directories that do contain image files.
Select "No Indexing" from the list.
Step 4: Click on Save.
