One of the things that WHM/cPanel servers have on by default is directory listing. This is something you don’t want – but it’s easy to fix!

1. Log into WHM
2. Apache Configuration –> Global Configuration
3. Type ‘Directory’ in the find box
4. Untick ‘Indexes’
5. Click Save
6. Click ‘rebuild and restart’
