I just upgraded my Mac OS Tiger system to Leopard and it screwed up the Apache configuration. I've managed to reconfigure it so that everything works as before apart from one thing. If I send a page request such as http://localhost/myuser/sitename and there is no index.html (or one of the others for DirectoryIndex) then it returns a listing of the directory. It didn't do this before and I can't turn it off no matter what I try.

Can someone who understands Apache sort me out please.
