I don’t know who’s idea it was, and I don’t see the benefit of it, but I do know that when you examing skynet hosting (in belgium, users.skynet.be) you don’t get dirlistings. You’re not allowed to create a .htaccess file (and I don’t think they’re using Apache either), with an .htaccess file just adding
Options +Indexes would fix it. You also can’t run php/cgi/asp scripts, so there is no way of listing your directory… Or is there?
I’m writing this script that does this for you, all you have to do is create a (free) account and fill out a form with some ftp-data. The script will then scan the ftp for files and generate an html files and put it in the root folder;
That’s one way to work around the problem. In the future, you’ll probably be able to do a lot more, like exclude files from the listing, only list jpeg’s, theme it, …
But for now it’s all dirty (php) code, will get a testpage up asap, no time right now.
For all those who don’t know what I’m talking about, this picture shows what a dirlisting (or Index) is. This one was obviously created by Apache.
