*not* just another blog ;)

A quick tip so that I don't forget this again. By default, VestaCP will set directories to disallow listings, for example, example.com/files would show a 403 error instead of listing the contents.

Sometimes, though, it's desirable to have a list shown to the user, so all we need to do is create or modify the .htaccess file in the top level folder.

For example, in /home/user/web/example.com/public_html/files/

nano .htaccess

Add the following to ALLOW listing:

Options +Indexes   


Options -Indexes   

Hopefully this also helps someone :)
