[resolved] Hide uploads folder (4 posts)

    When people enter /wp-content/uploads/ in the browser they see the content of that folder.
    I read this post http://wordpress.org/support/topic/is-there-a-way-to-hide-the-uploads-folder-from-public?replies=6 and this http://wordpress.org/support/topic/hide-directory-structure?replies=4
    I uploaded the empty html/php file and a .htaccess, but nothing changes. The content of the folder keeps visible.

    What else can I do?

    I installed this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/secure-folder-wp-contentuploads/ and this doesn't help to.

    Did you try placing this at the top of your .htaccess file:

    Options -Indexes

    If so, and that didn't work, what OS is your server using?

    Also, that plugin you mentioned just does what you did manually. Placing a blank index.html file there. Really you shouldn't leave the index.html file blank, it should have something like this in it:

    <html><body bgcolor="#FFFFFF"></body></html>

    The same for the index.php file. It should have something like this:

    <?php
    // Silence is golden.
    ?>

    There appears to be an issue with server caching. I'm having contact with the hosting company to solve this.
    Thanks for the advice.
