    FM Server 13 Apache defaults to "Indexes"



      FM Server 13 Apache defaults to "Indexes"


      FileMaker Server



      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.9.1

      Description of the issue

      When FileMaker Server 13 installs its own Apache web server it defaults the web server via the httpd.conf file to allow folder listing.  This is a potential security issue and should not be the default state of the installation.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      With FMS 13 installed put some files in a folder inside the htdocs folder and then go to the server via a web browser with that path and a list of files is displayed as long as there is no Index file.

      Expected result

      It should not allow it

      Actual result

      It shows a list of files and folders

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear



      Edit the httpd.conf file in /HTTPServer/conf/ and remove the "Indexes" from the line that reads
