    low level security


    I'm fairly new to Macromedia Dreamweaver and I have a security question...
    when you type in a url that doesn't contain any html, eg: the url of your "assets" folder, all the items in that folder appear as a list... is there any way to block that so that someone can't just type in the url and see the contents of that folder??
    Thanks,
    Danny.

    This has nothing to do with Dreamweaver and everything to do with your webserver configuration. First, you need to determine what your webserver is running (i.e.) Apache, IIS, Netscape Server or whatever. If your webserver is running Apache, then check out our Apache section and use the search feature, as this question has been answered there many times already. If you're running some other webserver, find out what you're running and post it here.

    for an easy solution: put an empty "index.html" there

    you are talking about the error message in your status bar?
    double-click on the error message and read why and where it did occur. then fix your code
