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.

 Here are the steps

  1. To access the Index Manager, click on the words "Index Manager" on the main screen 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 picture 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"

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