  • You can add any of these lines to your .htaccess files. The directive will affect the Folder that your .htaccess is in and all folders below it.
    -------------------------
    Options -Indexes
    
    (this prevents listing of directories)
    -------------------------
    Options +Indexes
    
    (this allows listing of directories, possibly useful to override an .htaccess directive stopping listing for all directories in case you want to allow it for particular ones)
    -------------------------
    IndexIgnore *
    
    (will prevent listing of all files, the "*" is a wildcard)
    -------------------------
    IndexIgnore *.gif *.jpg
    
    (will prevent listing of any files with .gif or .jpg extensions, but will allow other listings)

    Also, some folks simply put an index.php or index.html file with a custom message about trying to browse directories

    dont put an index.php inside your wp-content/plugins directory. Doing so will break your dashboard.

    yikes – sorry for that

    I have an index.html in mine and that works.

    yeah, index.html’s work, its the .php extension that screws stuff up. Ive no idea why, I never looked that hard, i just know it does.

    You can take care of this in three places.

    A)
    If you have access to your httpd.conf (server configuration) file, add the following to the <Directory> section. The IndexIgnore directive adds to the list of files to hide when listing a directory.

    IndexIgnore *

    B)
    If you can edit your .htaccess file (the one in the folder you have problem with, the plugins directory), insert the following:

    Options -Indexes

    This stops showing directory listings for URLs which map to the directory.

    C)
    You could also disable dir indexing completely. Find the following line in your httpd.conf and place a # in front of it.

    LoadModule autoindex_module modules/mod_autoindex.so

    Here is a good page on IndexIgnore: IndexIgnore

    Btw, you could also just restrict access to the directory completely with the Allow,Deny directive, but that is another story. See here if interested: Order Allow,Deny
