View Files in Web Directory
Possible with a default index.html?

If a file is not specified and there is no default web page(index.html), Apache loads a page(i.e. Index of /foo) displaying all the files in a directory.

Is there a way to access this from a browser even when there is a default index.html? Are there any scripts(bookmarklet, maybe) or apps that will snoop around a directory with a default page?

Hi mikegram,

If Apache finds an index page specified by DirectoryIndex, it won't generate a directory file listing, so yes, I think you'll need to use a script.

If no-one comes up with a good answer here, you could try posting in the PERL or PHP forums.
