When someone goes to a folder on my website, how can I make them get a forbidden error? Or do you have any better ideas?

I don't want certain stuff to be viewable.

I am using cPanel

Perhaps you could give some more information about the OS and the webserver you are using. If it is Apache on Linux, try this:

1. Edit the default config in /etc/apache2/sites-available
2. Look for the following "Options Indexes FollowSymLinks"
3. Replace "Indexes" with "-Indexes"
4. Restart apache
