    Yesterday, I incidentely found a security hole on my server with many domains.
    Everybody can see all server directories after typing

    But even not enough, calling up php-files displays the content which means for example calling certain config-files would show all important passwords :(

    Does anybody else suffer on the same problem? Any solution yet?

    I'm not having this problem on any of my servers.

    What version of ISPconfig are your using?

    A quick temp fix would be placing an empty index.html or index.php file in the directory. (it's not really secure, but it stops showing the directory listing)

    Please check that your linux system does not contain any default vhosts pointing to the directory /var/www for the SSL port in the apache configuration.

    This problem disappeared after updating debian sarge to etch with new apache 2.2 (old was something like 2.0.x).

    Okay, and the main problem is


    After removing this file, all IPs being not public (and controlled by ISPConfig) are not showing all directories anymore too. *grmpf*
    Hard to believe, that this gate stayed wide open for such a long time :)
