Hi I have a site with a forum installed in the directory2 with this structure:- www.domain.com/directory1/directory2/index.php Now when someone writes only this address- www.domain.com/directory1, it shows all the contents of the directory1. I want to change the permissions of directory1 in such a manner, that when someone types- www.domain.com/directory1 it gives him access denied error or 403 forbidden error. How can i do this? plz someone help. Thanx its urgent.
