How to stop directory browsing in Apache

Sometimes we've seen that when we browse a domain, we see the directory contents in the browsing mode which is not good from the perspective of security.

For a particular domain, we can stop this with .htaccess using the directive below:-

------------------------------

Options -Indexes

------------------------------

Similarily, if we want to enable the indexing we can use the directive below:-

------------------------------

Options +Indexes

------------------------------

That's it.
