    I followed these instructions precisely but it did not work at all.
    I’m using CentOS 7 with apache web server

    • Ken says:

      I found the issue: the httpd.conf file on my CentOS 7 server has multiple Directory sections: entirety of file system, document root, cgi-bin, etc.

      • I first edited the entirety of file system, this did not work.
      • I then edited the document root section, this worked.
      • I’m not sure yet if both sections should be edited for the changes.
  2. thanks for the tip, it helped a lot

    Thank you for your advice!

    “Options -Indexes ”
    But I am not sure how the final contents of this file .htaccess should be shown:

    Options -Indexes
    AllowOverride All

    Is that right?
