Knowledge Base:  Hosting - Site Management System cPanel:  Setting up directory indexing
Setting up directory indexing 
The Index Manager allows you to customize the way a directory will be viewed on 
the web. You can select between a default style, no indexes, or two types of 
indexing. If you do not wish for people to be able to see the files in your directory, 
choose no indexing.

1 To access the Index Manager, click on the icon as shown, below, in 
the "Advanced" section of your cPanel interface.

2 Click on the name of the directory you wish to change the indexing options for 
(You can click on the icon next to its name to navigate to that directory).

3 Select the type of indexing you wish to use for that directory from the menu that 
appears, and click on Save.

Folders set to "No Indexing" will have a small icon which looks like the one 
shown, below.

NOTE: A message similar to the following will appear (except the directory will be 
the one you have chosen, and the index options will be the one you have chosen) :


The index settings on /home/user/public_html/images have been updated. 
Indexes are now Off .


Try setting the indexing back to the server default if you are having problems 
viewing directories or files.
