Block directory listing when browsing by IP

Hello. I'd like my Centos web server to NOT allow directory listing when you're browsing folders like this:
http://<myserversip>/folder/

I have tried with .htaccess in the main html folder but it doesn't work.

My apache is configured like this: each domain has a configuration file in /etc/httpd/sites-available (and a link in sites-enabled).

So I guess I should add a configuration file for when you're browsing the server by IP. I have no idea how, though.

It works if I set
Options -Indexes
in httpd.conf, but this would block all indexing. I was wondering if this can be an issue when set globally.

Can someone help me? Thanks.
