  • You put an empty index file in any directory that doesn’t have one…
    It is not a WP issue but general “webmastering”…

    its not possible to add file in all the upload folders as usually atleast 3 folders are created a week 🙁 and already there are more than 50 folders

    i can’t think of the exact rewrite rule, but you can play with the .htaccess file to prevent users from viewing the directory. do a google search.

    Try adding Options -Indexes as a line in the .htaccess file that is in the main WordPress folder/directory. I believe that should cascade down to all the sub-directories.

    Just set the CHMOD to 711.
