Default Server help

Setting up my new domain.....I'd like to have the directory list setup so that when I give a link like www.williamwren.com , it shows the files in the directory. I know some hosts block this. If it'* not blocked, is there a way to make it work?

I was going to setup a gallery, but I have way too many pics in my bonneville collection now to spend the time to do it. I need some way to either list them all, or contact sheet them with an easy index.

I don't know if 1and1 allows or blocks it as a feature, but I do have a program that will generate HTML thumbnail pages.

Ok, this sucks. What I REALLY need is software that resides on the server, and shows an index (preferably with thumbnails) of every image file in the directory. I need this to be maintenance free if possible. I have hundreds of pics to 'gallery'.

I found one similar to what you gave me, but an easier interface. It still took me 4 hours to do what you see in the other thread.

Like I said, I never used the Thumbnails thing. Well, we tried, and you got one of the best image viewers I've ever used.

You can get a directory listing of the pics by ssh'ing into the server and changing the permissions on that directory to readable by all. For example if you if you want www.williamwren.com/pics to be directory listable you would ssh into your account. cd into the pics directory and type

chmod 755 . <enter>
chmod 755 * <enter>

This wil set the directory to readable as well as all the pics.

Or try,

Make a file called .htaccess
In the first line, write: options indexes

I think that is what you do to list all the files in a directory.

The access file goes in the directory you want.
