how to disable directory listing in web 6.1SPx ?
By Wing-Yip Walter Lee on Jun 11, 2009
If your security auditor said you need to disable the directory listing in your web 6.1SPx server, then you can do this in Admin GUI - Document Preferences - Directory Indexing - None. You can add an error response page too to send back when a request is asking for directory indexing.
The obj.conf will then look like below,
Service method="(GET|HEAD)" type="magnus-internal/directory" fn="send-error" path="/export/home/iws6.1sp9/docs/error.html"
then you can restart and take effect.
If you just comment out the default line below,
#Service method="(GET|HEAD)" type="magnus-internal/directory" fn="index-common"
Then the end-user will see a Method Not Allowed in the browser when they request a directory listing. They will not see the custom error page as above.
