Say I have a site with default protected directories.
Therefore a user cannot browse the contents of the directories unless an indexed html file is made pointing to each of the files in the directory and subdirectories. Obviously we dont want to do this by hand creating links one-by one in an html file The question is: How do I generate an htm file fast containing a browsable index of all files in all subdirectories.
