For Linux Web Hosting packages and Managed Dedicated Servers

Allow access to the contents of your webspace folders and files using an .htaccess file.

You can allow directory listing, which allows others to view the files contained in your webspace folders by using their web browser.

To do this, create a file named .htaccess in the folder where you want to list the content, and add the following option:

Options +Indexes

The changes take effect immediately. It is also suggested to Set Up Protected Directories so that access to the folder contents are password protected.

Please note: Since this option gives every visitor the list of files contained on your web space, it is deactivated by default on our web hosting servers.

A more convenient way to offer files to others for download is to use Online Storage.
