How can I change the index listing in a directory?

You can change the initial page that is sent to client requests when a directory is accessed by placing the following line into your .htaccess file:

DirectoryIndex filename

Replace filename with the actual file you wish displayed when someone visits the directory where your .htaccess file exists. By default, the webserver will display a file named index.html. If that does not exist, then it displays index.htm. If that does not exist, then it displays index.shtml Finally, if that does not exist either it displays index.cgi. If there is not index.cgi file either it lists all of the files in the current directory.
