    I have a directory on my web server that I have a bunch of drivers on, I dont want to make a page for them I just want to be ale to give the address out, like www.mydomain.com/some/directory/withfileshere

    and have it just list all the files there and when someone clicks on of them it initiates a download. Right now If I try that I get a permission denied, I'm assuming because the directory does not have a html page to display?

    You have to enable indexing for this vhost, e.g. by adding something like this to the apache directives field:

    <Directory /var/www/client1/web8/web>
    Options +Indexes
    </Directory>

    The path must match the directory path of this web.

    I tried this and it still don't work. I keep getting this:

    Code:
    ERROR 403 - Forbidden!
    The following error occurred:
    
    You are not permitted to access the requested URL.
    
    Please contact the webmaster with any queries.
    
    
    Please help, as I need this working as well.

    I'm really trying to figure this out on my own and it is getting very frustrating. So i disabled all options in ISPConfig for the site I'm trying to get to work. Then I enabled everythign I need for this site, and under the apache directives I have this:

    Code:
    <Directory /var/www/clients/client1/web1/web>
    Options Indexes
    </Directory>
    I've tried with the plus and without, I think I dont need the plus since nothing is in the directives. I cannot see what is wrong here.

    Yes it is, I even did 777 for good measure:
    Code:
    drwxr-xr-x  3 web2 client1    4096 2009-07-06 06:40 usb
    
    Here is the error message in the log file:

    You missed to add the code that I posted above. As your path is /var/www/exeba.com/web
    , just add this to the apache directives field:

    <Directory /var/www/exeba.com/web>
    Options +Indexes
    </Directory>

    I did this and still nothing. Here is the vhost file:
    Code:
         </Files>
        </Directory>
        <Directory /var/www/clients/client1/web2/web>
            Options FollowSymLinks
            AllowOverride Indexes AuthConfig Limit FileInfo
            Order allow,deny
            Allow from all
    
            # ssi enabled
            AddType text/html .shtml
            AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
            Options +Includes
            <Files ~ '.php[s3-6]{0,1}$'>
                Order allow,deny
                Deny from all
                Allow from none
            </Files>
        </Directory>
    
        # cgi enabled
            <Directory /var/www/clients/client1/web2/cgi-bin>
          Order allow,deny
          Allow from all
        </Directory>
        ScriptAlias  /cgi-bin/ /var/www/clients/client1/web2/cgi-bin/
        AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
        AddHandler cgi-script .pl
        # suexec enabled
        SuexecUserGroup web2 client1
    
    <Directory /var/www/exeba.com/web>
    Options +Indexes
    </Directory>
    </VirtualHost>
    
    One thing I do see and not sure if it by design or what, but in /var/www/ there is the actual website name, and then /clients/client1/web# wiht the same sites, would that have anything to do with it? Do I need to tell it the Directive for each path to that site???

    Here is the error.log for the latest change...
    Code:
