we have a departmental web site running on apache server. let's say the web site address is www.myschool.com
recently a group made a request about listing some of the files they share through afp server on their mac machines.
basically, if one enters www.myschool.com/groupA
in a browser, this should somehow go to the afp server and display files under a specific folder.
apache proxy can channel requests to another web site and maintaining the url.
should proxy be used here?
I can enable directory listing in one specific subfolder on the apache server for this purpose, would this be ok in terms of security? i don't want to modify the apache config file everytime some academics want to list some files through the school web site. Is directory listing on one subfolder acceptable?
