How can I view the contents (Files and Directorys) of htdocs?

Hello everybody,

I placed a folder under apache/htdocs/ on my computer at home and am at work trying to access that folder in the htdocs directory....however, I do not remember the name of it.  I would like to see a list of htdocs contents and not index.html displayed through the web browser.  I remembered a different folder under htdocs and went to it.  There is a link called ParentDirectory and when I click that is just displays index.html through the browser again.

Anybody know?

The default page for that directory is index.html - which means you cannot see a directory listing through the web browser.

Do you have access to ftp (and is it set up on your computer at home)?  If so, you could ftp into your computer...

periwinkle, what do you mean by "is it set up on your computer at home"?  How does it have to be set up?  I've used FTP between windows and unix, but don't understand how it would work given this scenerio?
You don't remember the name of the folder - you can get a listing of the names of directories through ftp;  you won't be able to via http:
you don't know the foldername, and you do not have access to httpd.conf and restart apache?, then there is no way.
Or do I miss something in your question?
