Hi,

Getting a few requests now and again about customers still getting the good old holding cgi default page. They clear cache after deleting the file and all works again.

I need to know if there is a way to firstly disable this default page completing and display the usual "Forbidden PAge"

Also to disable directly listing am I right in going to :

Apache Configuration
Global Configuration
Uncheck indexes at Directory /

I basically want to make it as easy as possible for new customers.

Thanks

Hello :)

1. Could you provide an example of what specific pages you are referring to? Also, which files are you referring to when you say that clearing the cache and deleting a file resolves the issue?

You can modify the default website page via:

"WHM Home » Account Functions » Web Template Editor"

2. Yes, removing the Indexes keyword from the Options directive is the correct way to disable directory listings.

Thank you.
