Manage indices File Manager – cPanel

Learn How to Manage indices from File Manager – cPanel. When a visitor accesses a directory (rather than a page) on your website, the browser typically displays the directory’s index page. If no index page exists, the browser displays a list of the files in that directory. Use the Indexes interface to define how the server displays a specific directory’s index to a visitor or to disable index display for a directory.
