    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.

    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.
