Apache web server allow directory browsing by default. Itââ,¬â,,¢s always good to disable directory browsing in security aspect.

To disable/prevent/forbid directory browsing/exploring using .htaccess:

  • Open your .htaccess file or create it if it is not exist yet

  • Look for Options Indexes command

  • If Options Indexes exists modify it to Options -Indexes or else add Options -Indexes as a new line

  • The directory browsing feature should be disable by now
