How to use index manager in cPanel?

You can use the Index Manager to specify how directories on your web site are displayed in the user's browser. If you do not want a directory’s contents to be visible, you can also turn off indexing.

 

You can set one of four options for any directory:

 

Default System Setting: This option uses the default system setting for your web site.

No Indexing: This option specifies that if an index file is not present, a directory listing is not displayed.

Standard Indexing:This option specifies that if an index file is not present, a directory listing is displayed as text.

Fancy Indexing: This option specifies that if an index file is not present, a directory listing is displayed as text with icons.
