Minor Change to the Apache2 Configuration: DirectoryIndex – May 20, 2010

We don't think it will affect anyone's current websites, but we've turned off DirectoryIndex'ing by default for security* reasons.  If you desire this behavior in a certain directory, you can turn it back on by adding (or editing an existing) .htaccess file and adding the line:

Options +Indexes

And the old functionality will be restored.

* Where "security" is defined as security through obscurity, and not any real definition of security at all, but it keeps the script kiddies away.
