my previous host had a feature that would automatically hide the directory contents from public view for any directory that did not have an index page. This was separate from having a directory password protected.
so if I had mydomain.com/images/filename.jpg and that “images” directory did not have an index file, no one would be able to see all contents of the directory “images” by truncating the path name in a browser window. if they attempted to go to “mydomain.com/images/” in a browser they’d get an error.
I found this to be a great privacy feature, particularly with client work. It was simple to set up: just clicking a checkbox and the whole site was given this feature.
How do I do this with my dreamhost account?
