Disable directory indexes / browsing / listing in CPanel

+1 vote

While accessing my website visitor always redirect to index page but if the index page does not exist in a directory, server shows the list of files and directories. I want to turn off the directory browsing for security reasons.

This is really simple to avoid your web content to being display overall.Directory browsing can easily be disable through .htaccess but i feel easiest to do it from cpanel.

  • Login to your CPanel
  • Click on Index Manager
  • Select the website/sub domain you want to disable director listing for
  • Select public_html from the list of folders
  • Next click on ‘no indexing’ and click Save
  • Now directory browsing should be disableddisbale directory browsing
