Hi there ...
Was just poking around at the web hosting portion of dreamhost and can't figure out how to set my domain to be non-browsable on the directories. Sure, I could put an index.html file in every directory, but that gets to be annoying. How do I change that?
Create a text file with a filename of .htaccess containing the following text:
Save it in your web root directory (where your home page goes) and it will turn off directory browsing.

Ah, never knew you could put Options directives in the .htaccess. I had my old httpd.conf w/ -Indexes, but obviously didn't have access to that here.
Hmm...This doesn't work for me, I've put the Options -Indexes in .htacess in the root of the domain. But it doesn't block indexing of any folder at all.....

Try spelling it ".htaccess".
well yes, I just spelled it wrong in here typing it. I use .htaccess for other things (mod rewrites, and increase upload)
Bleh and well went back checked them now. And it works fine. (didn't change anything cause I left it in) Guess was seomthing wrong with server or soemthing then when I orginally did it.
Hey sometimes it does seem like voodoo, eh? I'm glad you have it working!
